Southern Columbia Area's Fresh Food of the Month initiative, which returned for a fourth year with last month's successful launch, is made possible by a concerted school community effort put forth by volunteers of the District's Wellness Committee, SCA's Food Service workers, and local and regional farmers. Although not always seen, another key component of this initiative's monthly implementation are the students enrolled in Mrs. Emily Karas's Family and Consumer Science courses who assist in prepping the fresh food items as they arrive from the farms. This is a crtical step in ensuring the food items are ready for meal preparation and are in top condition when served. In addition to this work, the students are often charged with heading the educational campaigns which encourage the consumption of fresh foods and their connection to maintaining a healthier lifestyle. The next Fresh Food event is November 15th and will feature apple cider pressed from apples grown by Rohrbach's Farms.
