June 6, 2018 is Strawberries & Salad Greens Day!
For the last six years, schools across the District have participated in Strawberries & Salad Greens Day as a way to showcase locally grown produce in school meals. This event will educate students about both the health and environmental benefits of eating locally grown fruits and vegetables, and how healthy eating leads to healthy educational outcomes.
All Public, Public Charter, and Private schools have the opportunity to participate in the event by serving local strawberries and local salad greens during the lunch meal service on June 6, 2018. Schools can also sign up to host an “education station” table for students to visit in and around the cafeteria to identify where their food comes from. Schools who register will be able to pick up materials and a strawberry plant from OSSE on June 4, 2018.
