Cafe Corner November 2022


PWCS Food and Nutrition Department’s Local Harvest of the Month

Did you know your school cafeteria serves seasonal Virginia produce all year long? Incorporating local products into our menus gives students the opportunity to enjoy nutritious, fresh fruits and vegetables, while learning about the seasonality of foods and how foods are grown. These products support local farms and are a tasty way to improve the health of our children!

November’s Local Harvest of the Month is Cabbage!  The Food and Nutrition Department features local farmers who grow the produce we serve on our menu on their Twitter and Instagram accounts. Follow @PWCSNutrition to learn more about the local foods being served to students! Here is the recipe for the Stir Fried Cabbage served in all schools!
