Why Harvest of the Month?
Incorporating Harvest of the Month into your Farm Fresh activities provides an opportunity to focus on a specific fruit or vegetable each month, allowing children to try and learn more about each item.
Materials are ready-to-go tools and resources that can be used in diverse settings.
Use these materials in the following settings
- Child Care centers
- Day Care homes
- Summer nutrition program sites
- And many more!
By incorporating Harvest of the Month in the cafeteria and classroom, you help connect students to the bounty of the Lone Star State.
