Harvest of the Month is a new Farm-to-School program that promotes the use of local, seasonal fruit and vegetables.  Each month a NJ fruit or vegetable is featured in the school with educational nutritional information.  Local chefs will prepare a recipe featuring the Harvest of the Month for students to try.  Posters have been created for display throughout the school to bring awareness.  The Harvest of the Month provides a great opportunity to try new foods, talk about food choices, and learn where our food comes from.  

In December, we are piloting this program at the Ross School in Margate.
