SCA's Wellness Committee recently announced that the next Fresh Food of the Month Day will take place on Wednesday, October 22nd, and will feature the "crunchy texture and delicious taste of apples while they are in the peak of their season." All students in  grades K-12 will receive an apple variety from three local orchards/farms:  Leiby's Family Farms, Rohrbach's, and  Stahl's Plants and Produce.

Each month, the Southern Columbia Area School District will provide its students with local food from area farms as part of the National Farm to School program. The Farm to School program connects school districts and local farms to serve healthy meals in the cafeteria, improve student nutrition, and support local farmers. The initiative at SCA is being supported by a USDA Team Nutrition mini-grant, District Food Service funds, and generous donations from local farmers.
 
Many thanks are extended to this month's participating farms, and Gibby Knoebel of Gib's Farm,and Gail Zambor Schuerch, community volunteers who are active members of Southern Columbia Area's Wellness Committee.
