Farm to School Harvest of the Month Taste. Testing
September's Harvest of the Month is tomato. Food Services will be offering tastings of tomato & corn salad in all our school cafeterias on Friday, September 23rd and collecting feedback from students regarding what they like. If a majority of students like the dish, it will be incorporated into our school lunch menus. Several varieties of tomatoes are grown in New York State, including during the winter months. These are usually grown hydroponically in climate controlled greenhouses. Tomatoes are a great source of vitamins C and A, and can help keep blood sugar levels in check. If your child is not sure about trying tomatoes, cook them down into a tasty sauce to serve over spaghetti.
