Harvest of the Month – Nutrition Education

The goals of Harvest of the Month are to promote reading and to increase enjoyment and consumption of fruits and vegetables. Over 175 local K-5 grade teachers participate in this program where their students have the opportunity to taste and explore a different fruit or vegetable each month. Nutrition Education staff work with the Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) and the North Coast Co-Op to use local produce when possible

Along with the featured produce, teachers receive an educator packet that includes a newsletter with ties to curricular areas such as mathematics, science, art, reading and history. In addition, teachers receive a grade appropriate book highlighting the featured produce making a strong connection to literacy
