The Skinner Road School PTO and the Vernon Food and Nutritional Services Department recently teamed up for a family cooking night.

Chef Chris Avtges, the food and nutrition services director for the Vernon School system, worked with about 10 families - teams of one adult and one child - to prepare kid-friendly recipes that the students can be involved in making.

Avtges said it was the first of what he hopes will be a monthly event throughout the school district.

At Skinner Road School, the families prepared chicken en papillote with vegetables, cauliflower cous cous and a chocolate and cherry quinoa bar.
