  • October was National Farm to School Month!

    Posted by Nutrition Services at 10/27/2015 8:00:00 AM

    October was National Farm to School Month. To celebrate, school menus were full of food from local farmers. Here, students at Southern Heights Elementary were enjoying roasted butternut squash from local farm Carpinito Bros. in the Green River Valley. Cabbage from this month’s coleslaw is from local farms in the Kent Valley. Our daily salad bar has a variety of fresh fruits and veggies with many items from farms in the Kent Valley and Puyallup. We’re also serving Rosemary whole grain rolls made with flour from local farmers with Shepherd's Grain and local dairy every day at lunch! #EatLocal

The winners were Mrs. Foss’s 5th graders who created a traffic light of foods that are “Stop” (junk food), “Slow” (okay in small amounts) and “Go (healthy). Their prize was a surprise yogurt parfait party hosted by Nutrition Services with fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. Principal Kristin Percy Calaff even joined in the celebration!
