Partnership With Multimedia Academy
Innovation Health Solutions and Sustainable Solano are partnering with the Multimedia Academy to show the importance of healthy food and its benefits on the body. Armijo's students have been engaging in different activities every week by alternating between the kitchen group and the garden group. The kitchen group consists of different recipes and kitchen skills. The students learn how to properly use kitchen utensils like knifes, silverware, and how to cook healthy delicious food. The Garden group consists of teaching the students the significance of how important plants are and where they came from.
