Next week, RCPS Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) will be celebrating Farm to School Week by featuring local meats, fruits and vegetables on our menus. Our menu will include: locally raised ground beef from GlenDor Farms in Harrisonburg, freshly harvested potatoes from Valley Farming in Dayton, bibb-style lettuce from Portwood Gardens in Dayton, apples from Showalter's Orchard in Timberville, and sweet potatoes from Hanover. Our high schools will also be featuring pork bratwurst this month from Bakers Pork in Mount Jackson. Additionally, RCPS FNS is participating in the Crunch Heard 'Round the Commonwealth on Thursday, October 5, 2023. This is a Virginia-wide initiative to increase awareness of Virginia's Farm to School programs. Join us in your school's cafeteria to take a "crunch" out of a Virginia grown apple to make some noise for farm to school!
