The Montessori School of Baton Rouge hosted its annual Friendship Feast for the students and their families Nov. 20 at the school.

The meal is used as a way for the children to learn about and work with healthy foods.

The students, ranging in age from 2 ½ to 6, are responsible for all aspects of the meal, from setting the table to preparing the food. The children sort, wash, peel, cut, mix and stir all the ingredients needed to prepare the dishes.
