Farm Fresh Food Days – Volunteers Needed

Dexter Farm to School and Dexter Food and Nutrition are back with taste tests and new recipes using local foods in Dexter school cafeterias, building on progress made last year during our Farm Fresh Food Day tastings each month. In December, we’ll be featuring Michigan-grown potatoes in cafeteria sampling taste tests, AND on the lunch lines in all 6 schools! Last year, we focused on sampling new local foods to students, and we had such success with the potatoes last year, that we decided to try them again. But this time we’re actually serving them for lunch, rather than just sampling them!

Parent and volunteer help is needed in the cafeterias for the tastes tests. Sign up to volunteer to help with the sampling days here.
