Locally-grown sweet potatoes will be the featured Fresh Food of the Month for December.  The sweet potatoes will be served to all students in grades K through 12 on Thursday, December 18th. Teachers in grades K-2 will distribute the produce in their classrooms, while students in grades 3-12 will sample sweet potatoes during lunch.
 
The sweet potatoes will be set up at a separate tasting station within the cafeteria, complete with a "fixings bar" of butter, salt/pepper, brown sugar and sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Nutritional posters illustrating the health benefits of sweet potatoes will also be displayed in the cafeterias.
 
The sweet potatoes, and all Fresh Food of the Month items, are offered to students free of charge.  The program is supported by a USDA Team Nutrition mini-grant, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the Southern Columbia Area School District Food Service Department. Many thanks are also extended to    Gibby Knoebel, Linda Leiby and Debbi Kohl, local farmers who offered their services to find locally grown sweet potatoes. The potatoes featured in Thursday’s lunch were grown on Weaver Farm near Port Trevorton.
