On Wednesday, September 17, 2014 Rosa Parks Elementary School began another year of Salad Days with students at the school. This day starts with gleaning the garden and adding produce to donations from Whole Foods to make up many deep serving pans of salads. Parents from the PTA and Green Team (that works with CommunityGrows garden team) spend the early morning preparing the fruits and vegetables for the salad.
Then it’s off to the cafeteria to replenish and augment the salads in the cafeteria line. Many kindergarteners want seconds of salads, beans, carrots and apple slices. It is great to see the culture developing of good eating and healthy nutrition at Rosa Parks Elementary.
