The 2019 E.A.T.S. event will be from 6 - 7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 14 and plans are well under way for another extravagant event. During E.A.T.S., the hallway and cafeteria of School District 166 is transformed into a gastronomical delight, offering a delectable array of tasty samples from local food vendors and restaurants. 

There is also musical entertainment and lively bidding on dozens of silent auction items. 

It's all for a good cause, in support of the Cook County Education Foundation, which awards grants for projects and activities that enhance the curriculum. A total of $175, 881 in grants have been provided by the foundation to activities such as Ice Storm Robotics, Spanish language camp, Wolf Ridge trips, and much more. 

For information about E.A.T.S., contact Cook County High School at 218-387-2273. 

WTIP's Rhonda Silence sat down with some of the organizers to learn more. Here's that conversation.
