Harvest of the Month
 
Springfield Public Schools has partnered with the Willamette Farm and Food Coalition on a Harvest of the Month program. Each month one locally grown item is highlighted and served weekly in all cafeterias. Harvest of the Month gives students the chance to taste and learn about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables. There will be a poster highlighting the harvest of the month posted in all cafeterias. Below are links to the posters. There are also links to Oregon Harvest for Schools family newsletters for some months.
