Riverside Central Brings the Farm to School
- Janet Stammer, Riverside Central Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
Riverside brought the Farm to School in several different ways this year. First, a nutrition activity was presented where students learned how various vegetables and grains grew and how we get our milk and yogurt. Next students made a vegetable pizza with a whole grain crust, a layer of Greek yogurt mixed with ranch and assorted vegetables. This activity was presented multiple time so many students could be a part of this. Next a dairy farmer visited our school and taught students much about how cows produce milk and how it gets to the school. Last an FFA group came to our school and even brought animals with them to teach us more about farming.
