Have you ever tried romanesco? Do watermelon radishes taste like watermelon? Our students are learning about these and other fruits and vegetables throughout October. Our Food and Nutrition Services department coordinated recent campus visits from Johnson's Backyard Garden and Labatt Food Service to all six elementary campuses. These representatives set-up "farmers markets" in our cafeterias where students were able to sample a variety of local and unique fruits and vegetables at no cost. These types of events provide students with opportunities to learn how food is grown and potentially expand their pallets.
Enjoy these photos from Labatt’s visit with students at West Cypress Hills Elementary School.
