Local Chefs in the Schools for Harvest of the Week

November 1st, 2013

IMG_4900Schools across the country have been adopting a Harvest of the Month campaign as a means to improve student nutrition by empowering them to choose a wider variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables. With the celebration of National Farm to School Month, Sustainable Nantucket’s Farm to School Program piloted a Harvest of the Week campaign highlighting kale, butternut squash, potatoes, and pumpkin throughout the month of October. In addition to the school food service department incorporating these locally grown crops into the school lunch menu, local chefs from the SeaGrille, American Seasons and the NPS Culinary Art’s department added their culinary expertise to create unique dishes around the weekly harvest.  These culinary creations of potato hash, butternut squash soup, kale chips and pumpkin ice cream were then served to NHS and CPS students as a free sampling during their lunch period.

Ben Pumpkin icecreamTHANK YOU to Bartlett’s and Moors End Farsm for helping to provide the food and their agricultural expertise during the distribution of the chef samples and THANK YOU to the chefs for donating your time to create these delicious bites.
