Lower Elementary Taste Tests Harvest Soup
Forgotten Harvest Donated Butternut Squash for the Students to Try
On November 18th, all of the students at Ferndale Lower Elementary were invited to try tasty, roasted butternut squash in the cafeteria. After trying the squash, students got to vote if they Loved it, Liked it, or Tried it.
Over 200 students came back to the tasting table to vote, and roughly half of the students liked or loved the squash and half just tried it.
It was great working with parent volunteers, the cafeteria staff, teachers, and lunch monitors to make this tasting happen - it was a whole community job! The squash was donated through Forgotten Harvest from Kroger.
