This year our cafeterias will serve a new Harvest of the Month recipe with a different seasonal fruit or vegetable each month.  Nutrition Services staff hope you like these short videos showing how to prepare these recipes. We will post the recipe on our website so families can enjoy these recipes at home! Students can find Harvest of the Month salads every Thursday in the cafeteria.
