GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Grand Rapids Urban League and Grand Rapids Community College are cooking up a special meal Monday.

Young gardeners from Grand Rapids Urban League have linked up with culinary students from GRCC to cook up the vegetables raised this summer.

Culinary program director Werner Absenger and GRCC students will help the children, who also set up the adjoining banquet rooms at the Applied Tech Center on Fountain Street for a special dinner with their families. Children will learn about the importance of nutrition and healthy foods as well as ways to prepare meals.
