Workshop Details

The Menu Planning workshop focused on tools and resources to easily swap local items into school menus and how to respond to surprise donations of fresh produce. We reviewed harvest schedules, Harvest of the Month items, and how to find flexibility in your menu planning for each season. Also included was how to interpret information from a farmer (i.e., in what quantities products are sold and how that translates to what you need to purchase), food safety considerations for purchasing local, and how to credit these foods towards the meal pattern requirements.
