New Harvest of the Month Calendar and Educational Materials!
Whatcom County districts are starting the school year with a new Harvest of the Month calendar and accompanying education and outreach materials. The calendar features three new items – root vegetables, winter squash, and radishes!
Go to the Harvest of the Month page to see many educational tools for each Harvest item. New this year are “Teacher Talking Points” for teachers (and parents) to share with students about adventurous eating, as well as nutritional information and some trivia about the Harvest item.
Whatcom F2S, with the support of the Whatcom Community Foundation, is offering grants for projects to enhance school cafeteria and kitchen environments to promote healthy eating.
For more information about how to apply for this funding, read the full Request for Proposals and instructions.
Letters of Interest are due Oct. 1.
