Ed Christensen, Assistant Director of Food and Nutrition Services of Missoula County Public Schools (MCPS) and I, Jacque Contant, Montana Dietetic Intern, team up to show you how to make the best Kale Chips in an institutional food service setting. BAM!

Edward Christensen has spent 28 years in foods service, with the last 10 years as a supervisor for Missoula County Public Schools Food and Nutrition Programs where he performs operations, menu development and procurement for the 18-building K-12 District with a satellite food service operation.
