Look At Us!

As we wrap up October, #farmfreshmonth and #nationalschoollunchweek here is a quick recap! #texasagriculturematters #farmfreshtexas 
Miranda Rhodes, Angie Morris, Ian Vestal, and Chef Wildcat helped celebrate our first week of the Farm Fresh Challenge. They stopped in at Meridith Dunbar Elementary to visit with the students during lunch. Students had the opportunity to try roasted sweet potato chunks! Some of them let us know they eat sweet potatoes at home! Some let us know they had never had a sweet potato! Some loved them! Some, did not - but they tried it!

We are participating in the Farm Fresh Challenge so kids can learn about where their food comes from and our local farmers and ranchers have new customers close to home. Join us!

Farm Fresh Month is here! Every Wednesday in the month of October all of our kitchens will be serving up different sweet potato recipes! The sweet potatoes will be locally sourced from Fruitful Hill Farm.

Our students have been enjoying locally grown produce this week.
Our very own Miranda Rhodes spent some time at Meridith-Dunbar Early Childhood Academy teaching the students how to make eggplant fries!!! The classes learned how to pick their produce from the garden, clean it, prepare it, and their favorite - eat it! And at the end, we all cleaned up our messes and talked about how we liked the recipe.
