Nutraloaf: A Culinary Curiosity from Criminal Justice and Food Service

SUN Area Technical Institute’s Criminal Justice and Food Service programs teamed up to learn about Nutraloaf: a food found only in the American prison system. Nutraloaf is a product made for prisoners to provide all of the nutrients they’re required to be fed by law, in the most flavorless, unappetizing way possible. The practice of serving Nutraloaf as a punishment has gone to court many times, but persists to this day.

The video below shows students from Criminal Justice explaining Nutraloaf and the legal legacy it’s left behind it.  The Food Service program then follows up on the research by making several types of Nutraloaf and inviting students and instructors to taste test. The verdict? It’s gross!

Food Service students at SUN Tech received a double dose of culinary expertise in their program today. SUN Tech’s Food Service instructor Justin Wright (left) and  the Culinary Institute of America’s Giovanni Ray educated the program’s 17 students in a variety of career and cooking options.

SUN Area Technical Institute’s Food Service Program was highly distinguished by Giovanni and his organization.

Mr. Wright has brought many new ideas into the classroom and has set up many hands-on catering activities on and off-campus for his students. SUN Tech graduates have been highly recruited by our area’s restaurants and food service industry. Many participate in SUN Tech’s Cooperative Education Program where students work and attend school. Come out To Sun Tech’s Hide Away Restaurant to see these fine students in action. Call 570-966-1246 for menu options and Restaurant opening dates/times.

Students enrolled in the Food Service program will learn hands-on in the kitchen how to create delicious dishes, and will learn “front of the house” skills required for customer service and restaurant management while working in the Hide-Away Cafe. Our students have the opportunity to earn college credits while attending SUN Tech and will have the chance to gain job experience and earn money through our Co-op program.

Aubrey Shirk and Alyssa VanSteyn, Food Service 2010-2011

Our names are Aubrey Shirk, (a junior at Shikellamy High School) and Alyssa VanSteyn, (a senior at Midd-West High School). We both came to SUN Tech to continue our education in an environment that will help us prepare for our post-high school education. Our program offers many opportunities. It gives us chances to learn the proper techniques and rules of food safety and cooking; and it also helps us practice all of these skills on a daily basis. This class has given us the chance to not only learn food service skills, but also employability skills; and we have learned about ourselves as well.

We are challenged every day to work efficiently when we are alone and also to work as part of a team. In our program, we have a student-run restaurant.  This gives us the opportunity to learn leadership skills and team work. We practice all the different jobs associated with running a restaurant.

Throughout the year, we participate in fund raising to raise money to go on field trips that are related to our program; they are both educational and fun. So far, this year we have visited Penn College of Technology and Lejeune Chef.

We both feel that enrolling in SUN Tech was a great idea. At SUN Tech we spend each day, all day, learning the skills that will help us become employable.  We are encouraged to embrace our creativity and apply our classroom work to hands-on activities. If asked by any student if we think they should attend SUN Tech, we would strongly recommend it if they are sincerely interested in the field related to the program of interest. SUN Tech gives you the encouragement to do great and to present yourself with maturity as well as providing a great opportunity to hold a good and steady job in the future and to you prepare for college.
