Wednesday, June 5, 2019 is Strawberries & Salad Greens Day!
Since 2011, 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, private schools, and early learning centers have the opportunity to participate in the event by serving local strawberries and local salad greens during meal service on June 5, 2019. Schools can also 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 on June 3, 2019.
Schools, register for the event.
