Whitsons Greenleaf Cuisine® Local Day Event at Maynard High School

 

Team members at Maynard High School held a Whitsons Greenleaf Cuisine® Local Day event, featuring fresh organic fruits and vegetables from Maynard High School’s School Garden and Applefield Farm in Stow, Massachusetts.

 

The menu for the day featured two salad bars filled with freshly harvested organic produce, pineapple infused barbecue chicken, roasted fingerling potatoes, and fresh grilled vegetables.

 

Whitsons’ Greenleaf Cuisine® Initiative promotes local farms where produce is harvested from and helps support the Farm-to-School campaign, in an effort to increase student consumption of fruits and vegetables, encourage healthy food choices and increase students’ exposure to healthy and nutritious foods.

 

“It was great to work with the students and faculty in Maynard throughout the preparing, planting, harvesting and serving of the produce from the school’s garden. The students really enjoyed the experience of having fresh organic local produce from their garden as well as local produce purchased from a farm at the Maynard Farmers Market,” said Chris Piercey, Food Service Director for Maynard School District.
