A black and white image of African American women learning how to serve food. The course was in school lunch management, and it was offered as part of the vocational education program given at Bethune-Cookman University. In the forefront of the image, women wearing hairnets practice preparing an assembly line of food for the students. The food ranged from potatoes, to rolls, to casseroles. At the right of the image is a Caucasian male, who is the instructor. In the background of the image, other women prepare food as well. The women appear to be working in an oversized kitchen, where ovens, pots, pans, and plates can be seen. At the right of the image, hanging on the wall, is a poster that reads, "The Wheel of Good Eating; Eat foods from each group daily. Keep it balanced, make it spin." The photographer of the image is unknown.
