Harvest for Students Week: September 17-21

Next week, the Milton Public Schools Food Services will be celebrating “Harvest for Students Week".  It is our fifth year celebrating the wonderful collaboration we have developed with Lanni Orchards in the western part of the state.  This year we have also been working with Brookwood Community Farm right here in Milton.  This event is part of the Massachusetts Farm to School Project.

Our produce includes:
Fresh Tomatoes
Green and Red Peppers
Cucumbers
Carrot Sticks
Apples
Peaches
Pears
Basil

We have been serving these wonderful foods all month and will continue as the season allows.  A big THANK YOU goes out to the MPS Director of Food Services, Ms. Morgan, and the MPS Food Services Team.

It is great to enjoy some delicious fruits and vegetables that have been grown locally!
