Hi all! I am looking for a seasonal & regional fruit and vegetable (FV) of the month program. Specifically, something with recipes for food service, posters, and lessons for K - 5. All the resources I've found are focused on increasing FV consumption in children but they are not making that next step to include seasonal, local eating and connecting it back to farms.I just wanted to check with you all before I started down the path of creating one for my district/local farm.
Where are you located? What is your region?
I am in eastern Massachusetts -- in New England.
Here's an example from Vermont:http://brattf2s.wordpress.com/vegetable-fruit-guides/
There are also great examples in California:http://www.healthylausd.net/harvestOfTheMonth/harvestOfTheMonth.htm
Hope this helps!
These are great! Thanks so much for sharing.
