As we told you here yesterday, WBAY, Channel 2 came to campus for a story on the Healthy Cook-Off Challenge from the Campus Life Healthy Choices Task Force. Reporter Kristyn Allen spoke with Residence Life’s Melissa Klinkhammer and RA Caitlin Baker for this story about making good nutrition more accessible for college students — even when a dorm microwave is the sole means available for cooking. We linked to a short preview story in yesterday’s Log, and now we have the full report. WBAY also made the cook-off challenge its Facebook question of the day, and folks are sharing quick and healthful recipes there (just search WBAY TV).
The Campus Life Healthy Choices Task Force is proud to present the “Healthy Cook-Off Challenge.” Our students need you and your creative and healthy food recipes. This is a great opportunity for UW-Green Bay students, staff, and faculty members to submit healthy microwave recipes or recipes that require no cooking equipment. This event is to promote healthy cooking options for living on campus to our UW-Green Bay students. Recipe submissions must be emailed to Melissa Klinkhammer at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, April 15.
