Apple cider was November's Fresh Food of the Month and it proved to be a popular choice among the District's K-12 students as 46 gallons of the local favorite was consumedl  The monthly fresh food campaign provides students access to nutritious, high quality, local food, free of charge, typically during lunch periods. The campaign is organized by the District's Wellness Committee and helps promote the importance to good health of eating more fresh fruits and vegetables. The apple cider served during Wednesday's lunch periods was pressed at Blyer's Fruit Farm in Gratz and was purchased locally through Rohrbach's Farm Market. Many thanks to Rohrbachs for their assistance in securing the cider and for participating in the District's Farmer in the Classroom program which is run in conjunction with each fresh food event. Mrs. Denise Bosworth of Rohrbach's visited G.C. Hartman Elementary and taught lessons on how apple cider is made while also explaining the nutritional benefits of apples and apple products, including cider.
