Harvest of the Month

Prior to March 2020, students would sample and learn about a fruit or vegetable that is in season each month. Our Wellness Program would arrange monthly recess and lunch taste tests at each school to expose students to the selected fruit or veggie and to encourage them to make healthier choices. The cafeteria would then serve that item on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month.

Due to the pandemic, we put a pause on the program and brought it back during our bulk meal distributions in the spring of 2021. With the return to in person school, we have brought the program back in a modified format. We select a fruit or vegetable that's in season here in California and offer that item at between two to six times during the month.
