Hi again everyone! This week was another four meal week in our household. Our school district sponsored a local farms fresh food day at the schools and I wanted my daughters to participate. Do any of you have schools who work with local farms to provide fresh, local food and ingredients? My girls had chicken, a biscuit, and they got to pick two local veggies (servings) and a local fruit. I want to support our district when they choose to provide special days like this, so I gave the girls each $2.75 ($5.50!) and sent them off to school. They both said they enjoyed the food, but they’ve always enjoyed vegetables and fruit. They said there was no extra announcements or signs up that told about where the food was from. I think that would have been a nice touch.
