Over the last few years, DC schools have come together to provide its students with locally grown juicy strawberries and crunchy salad greens on a special day in celebration of supporting local foods. This year, the Strawberries & Salad Greens Day will be held on Wednesday June 8, 2016 and students will have the opportunity to taste locally-grown strawberries and salad greens right from their cafeteria, while also learning about other fruits and vegetables that can be grown right in our own backyards!
