Farmers, schools sought for statewide Taste of Washington Day

Jul 13th, 2010 | Category: News

STATE – The Washington School Nutrition Association and Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Farm-to-School Program is seeking to partner school districts with nearby farms for “Taste of Washington” Day on Sept. 29. The focus of the day is to bring students a fresh lunch comprised of local ingredients, present farmer-focused curriculum in the classroom, and share information with students about local food systems and agriculture. The menu for the day may include hamburgers with corn on the cob or baked potatoes and chili, both meals being accompanied by milk and fruit salad. Any farmers or local districts interested in participating, should contact Tricia Kovacs at tkovacs@agr.wa.gov or (206) 256-6150.
