Child Nutrition Services was invited to Village Green Environmental Studies School by the Kindergarten class to assist in the harvesting and cleaning of radishes grown by the students in the school garden.

After the harvest, the students participated in a kitchen tour given by Ms. Deanna Kinder, cafeteria manager, including a stop by the freezer!

Ms. Dawn Davila showed students how to wash and trim the radishes and explained how the roots bring nutrients to the plant to help it grow into the food we eat.

After the harvest and kitchen tour, students enjoyed a farm to school salad which included, lettuce from Belle Glade, cherry tomatoes from Boca Raton, zucchini from Indiantown and freshly harvested school grown radishes!

A yummy time was had by all!
