HOLLYWOOD — The Integrative Health Department and Hollywood Community Culture Center presented a food preparation and safety class for tribal youth June 15 at Culture’s kitchen in the Howard Tiger Recreation Center. Nicholas Persaud, Environmental Health supervisor, showed the students in the Seminole youth chef summer program the importance of food safety which focused heavily on proper temperatures to cook different foods. He also talked about the importance of preventing cross contamination while preparing different foods.

The program, for ages 6 to 17, features four sessions at the Hollywood kitchen; the final two are scheduled for July 13 and July 27.
