Students at Inuksuk High School in Iqaluit are in an enviable position: they are learning how to cook and eating delicious lunches.

That’s thanks to the efforts of food studies teacher Lael Kronick and her students in grades 9 to 12.

Three days a week they produce tasty, well-balanced meals from scratch, which serve between 100 and 150 students and staff at the school.

For instance, March brought scallops on creamy broccoli pasta, pad thai with veggie spring rolls and prime rib with mixed roast vegetables.

On the monthly menu there was even a recipe, popularized by a viral TikTok video, of baked feta pasta with cherry tomatoes, pasta and goat cheese.
