Herbs and Spices is a restaurant located at Gratiot-Isabella Technical Education Center (GI-TEC) where students learn how to cook and run a restaurant.  It is a student run business.  The restaurant is open in accordance with the school schedule.  Students work every day in the restaurant as they train for a career in the food service industry.  Come see us for lunch!

Food Items at The School Store

Every day of the week, students are responsible for supplying The School Store with various food items for sale.  Popular items include their famous chocolate chip cookies, personal pizzas and calzones.  This is just a few of the great items that the students make for The School Store.
