Harvest Of The Month Highlight
June is Peaches!
Harvest of the Month is a set of tools and resources promoting healthy eating habits and nutrition education while showcasing locally grown produce. Its multi-functionality has allowed it to be utilized in a variety of settings – school, workplace, retail outlets, and many more.
Check back each month as we feature a new, in-season fresh fruit or vegetable that you can integrate at home, in the workplace and share with family and friends!
