It’s Massachusetts Harvest for Students Week!
Massachusetts Harvest for Students Week
Sept 19-23, 2011
Myrna Greenfield from Massachusetts Farm to School Project writes:
The Massachusetts House and Senate have passed nearly identical resolutions designating September 19-23 as Massachusetts Harvest for Students Week. The resolutions were introduced in the House by Representative Stephen Kulik (D-Worthington) and in the Senate by Senator Stanley Rosenberg (D-Amherst). During Harvest Week, schools and colleges promote the local harvest and serve fresh, nutritious meals prepared with foods produced by Massachusetts farms. Many also have special activities conducting taste tests, serving local snacks at parents’ night, or inviting farmers to campus. Harvest Week is coordinated by the Massachusetts Farm to School Project, based in Amherst, Mass. For more information, visit www.massfarmtoschool.org.
