Cooking Class Recipes

These Cooking Class Recipes are versions of popular Food Hero recipes redesigned (especially direction steps) to be used easily with groups or teams of kids in classroom enviornments.  For example, groups of middle school cooking teams.  The recipes are individually listed below, and also combined into two classroom sets of recipes.  The 14 recipes included in this project were chosen on the criteria of being kid-liked, cooking skill building, and the sets focused on a balanced MyPlate meal pattern.

Nutrition education reinforcement materials refer to a class of goods given to the Food Hero target audience on some occasions to convey nutrition messages and promote healthy nutrition and physical activity practices.  These items must have a direct relationship to program objectives and the desired nutrition behavior change. Such items are allowable costs only if they are reasonable and necessary and contain/reinforce nutrition messages.

Flyer Templates

Food Hero Community Flyer Templates

Food Hero educators use community flyers to promote their events. The Food Hero Community Flyer project was developed to make sure educators were able to easily include campaign-tested messages and professional design elements in their flyers, plus write text which adheres to the campaign’s theory and research base.  At the same time, the flyer project allows flexibility for community needs.

Event Tips/List

Photo Releases

Any photo or video used by Food Hero with a model has a photo release, and most likely an OSU release linked below, or in a few cases is a stock photo legally obtained.  

If a photo with a human model/s was taking by someone outside OSU and the creator and distributor of the photo/video has a model release from the person/s there is a chance Food Hero could use their release under the following conditions.  If all the conditions are not met Food Hero would need the person/s in the photo/video to also sign an OSU release.

Food Purchasing

These are the guidelines Food Hero has designed for all Food Hero funded OSU educators working in Oregon.  This document may be helpful for other states or countries who are doing similar work.
