During Mrs.Lane’s first period Independent Living class, students completed the infamous “Better than McDonald’s” cooking lab. The lab teaches students how to make homemade and healthier versions of fast food items.

Marissa DePalma, a member of the Class of 2022, said, “I enjoy all the cooking labs because it’s fun to cook with my friends.”

Students had to make homemade chicken nuggets, french fries, and iced tea. The class learned how to bread chicken, properly cut fries, and clean all the materials used to prepare chicken.

Devyn Watkins, a member of the Class of 2019, said, “I loved this lab because I learned how to make a delicious meal for myself without all the calories I would get from McDonald’s.”

As someone who personally tasted the meal, I can say with 100% confidence that it was definitely better than McDonald’s.
