A volunteer ladles healthy food on a plate in a soup kitchen while a young African-American girl looks on.

In this project, students plan a multi-course meal for the class. Students research recipes and food prices and identify quantities and costs of ingredients to develop a reasonable and actionable plan for the meal.
