It was a Farm to School Kinda Day at RES!

What a day filled with tasty local food at RES. For lunch, we had chicken from Misty Knoll Farm, carrots from Jericho Settlers Farm, and soup featuring local squash. Our Farm to School Coordinator, Mae spent some time with Ms. Gilbar's kindergarteners in the afternoon learning about root vegetables, tasting pickled beets, and using our five senses to describe different kinds of produce. After school, we made carrot muffins (featuring local Jericho Settlers carrots) with a homemade vanilla glaze in our kitchen creations group! Next up: Healthy cooking club at CHMS and harvest of the month programming in Ms. Thompson's health class. #lovelocal
