Springfield Public Schools has partnered with the Willamette Farm and Food Coalition to bring local fruits & vegetables to your child's lunch tray by participating in the Oregon Harvest of the Month program. Each month one locally grown fruit or vegetable is highlighted and served weekly in all cafeterias in the Springfield School District. Harvest of the Month gives students the chance to taste and learn about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables. Students are encouraged to try new things to develop their tastebuds and expand their vision of what "healthy" looks and tastes like. Each month there is a poster highlighting the harvest of the month which helps your child learn about local farms and the benefits of the fruits and vegetables they're eating. We are also posting Oregon Harvest for Schools family newsletters and/or Food Hero newletters, both featuring the latest and greatest Harvest of the Month feature item. Please join us in celebrating Harvest of the Month by printing out these newsletters and discussing them with your family at dinner.
