National Farm2School Month

October is National Farm2School Month and District 833 Nutrition Services Department values locally grown foods.  These iems are fresh, minimally processed and the food tastes delicious because it is picked at the peak of freshness.  Look for Roasted Red Potatoes from the Hmong American Farmers Association Farm in Hastings at the middle and high schools on October 7th.  Apples from Whistling Well Farm in Afton will be on the menu at all schools on October 22nd for “Crunching Into MN Grown Apples Day.” Consider visiting a local farm for a fun family outing and support a local farmer.
