Southern Columbia Area's Fresh Food of the Month campaign provides students and staff access to nutritious, high quality, local food. This month's featured food was grown on Hoagland's Farm in Elysburg. Elementary students were treated to a Harvest Bake made from gooseneck pumpkins while High School and Middle School students sampled a Fall Harvest Soup made from gooseneck pumpkins and butternut squash.
 
This month's event was also highlighted by a Farmer in the Classroom presentation by Dana LeVan and Sherry Dove from Paul R LeVan Sons Farm in Catawissa. The local farmers visited G.C. Hartman Elementary and spoke to the students about their profession.
