Locally-Grown Lunch Menu Items are a Hit

Suzi's Farm says this is for San Diego Unified.

America's healthiest and tastiest school lunches continue to be in the cafeterias of San Diego Unified. For example,certified locally grown Kabocha squash from Suzie's Farm in the South Bay is our January Harvest of the Month, appearing eachThursday in school salad bars.

More than 10,000 pounds of the vegetable were grown especially for San Diego school kids. Local persimmons were so popular in December that they're staying on the salad bars until we run out, which will probably be in a week or so.
San Diego Unified's Farm to School program and itsinnovative Food Services Department keep our kids healthy and ready to learn.For more information, contact Gary Petill, Food Services Director, at (858)627-7301.
