Working together as a community, we are truly making an impact on ensuring that schools offer children healthy lunch alternatives and that breakfast is provided for children who otherwise would be starting the day at a disadvantage. Bring your children along to your local farmers market. Encourage them to speak to the vendors and ask questions of about what they do. We are offering our children role models for the next generation of farmers, chefs and food producers.
To further help our children, Edible Boston has also teamed up with the New England Dairy Promotion Board to increase access to fresh milk through our areas Food Banks. I encourage you to contribute to this wonderful campaign. To learn more go to MustBeTheMilk.com/milkdrive. Your contribution will make a difference!
Fall is indeed my favorite season, especially the month of September. Fresh produce is still plentiful. Apple picking is a great family and friends outing and can be topped with cider donuts and cider-soft or hard! Cutting up the season’s squashes and utilizing every part of the squash offers lessons in New England frugality and environmental consciousness. Not to mention the joy in creating some seasonal family traditions that taste wonderful.
