The Chequamegon Bay Harvest of the Month program features a different food item each month, emphasizing seasonal, traditional, and nutritious foods. The food item is featured on school menus and students are educated about the food item through nutrition lessons, tastings, an interactive bulletin board in the cafeteria, and a take-home flyer.
Harvest of the Month
2018-2019 Calendar and Resources
Eating in season makes in easier to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables.
Purchasing local foods is good for your family and your community.
Choose vegetables rich in color.
A healthy diet includes lots of red, orange, and dark green veggies.
In the winter months when fresh local fruit is unavailable, buy seasonal fruits from warmer states like Florida and California. If we are lucky we might still have kale to harvest in the high tunnel.
Preserve produce by freezing, drying, or canning in order to enjoy all year long.
Make at least half your grains whole grains, and choose natural sweeteners.
Spinach and Salad Greens are growing well in the high tunnels again!
Celebrate spring with the first fresh produce of the season.
