Fun Food Friday Samples

Fresh Peas

Fun Food Fridays began during the 2010-2011 school year as an effort to introduce students to fruits and vegetables that they may not typically see at home or in the school cafeteria.  Sample sizes of different fruits and vegetables were offered during lunch on the first Friday of every month at the elementary schools. 

Some of last year’s samples included jicama, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, black beans, and grapefruit.  This year, the samples will still be offered at the elementary schools, but will be expanding to the middle school level with the introduction of the salad bars.  To keep things interesting this year, the samples will be more than just fruits and vegetables. 

Check back monthly to find information on upcoming samples and pictures of the previous month’s sample.
