John Muir Salad Days are here again!

October 18th, 2015

IMG_3470With a grant from Kaiser-Permanente we are honored to offer Salad Days again this year at John Muir Elementary School. CommunityGrows staff Melissa Tang and Cha’Shay Woldridge joined Advisory Board member Casey Johnson in the morning Friday, October 2nd, 2015 to cut and peel organic vegetables, donated by Veritable Vegetable. IMG_3468Carrots from Something Good Organics were shaved and HoneyCrisp apples from Cuyama Orchards apples were cored and sliced, and then combined with a spring mix of greens from Jayleaf. IMG_3487Even though most of us shaved off a little of our fingertips, the morning and lunch were a huge success. In the cafeteria, waves of students came by to get salads and enjoy seconds. IMG_3500Three big bowls were gone in no time. A delicious party. Stay tuned for more salad days at John Muir Elementary School throughout the year.
