Since we have partnered with a farm in our local community, our students have shown an increased interest in tasting things they have never tried during family mealtime. Taste tests are prepared by a farm to table local chef. Past taste tests have been sauteed fresh cauliflower with garlic, kale chips, and recently fresh smoothies and honey roasted Brussels sprouts. This year we have a planned winter squash medley taste test in January and spring vegetables in May 2016.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Providing taste tests for 900 students becomes pricey. Donations from chefs helped get us started.
