Fircrest — Washington State University Extension’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education, Evergreen Public Schools’ Chartwells Food Service and Clark County Green Schools helped Fircrest Elementary School students kick off the year’s Harvest of the Month program. More than 250 third-, fourth- and fifth-graders learned about the importance of breakfast by eating a rainbow of local fruits and vegetables. They learned where their food comes from and why composting food waste is crucial to having a greener school. Students also sampled this month’s featured ingredient, peaches, from a farm in Wapato.
