Texas Schools recognized with the Perfect Peach Award
Magnolia ISD is proud to announce that the Texas Department Award has recognized our School Lunch Program with the Perfect Peach Award for serving Local Products with local ingredients in our celebrations of Farm Fresh Fridays. Our goal was to help students learn where food is grown and raised in the Lone Star State and why Texas agriculture matters.
Farm Fresh from Texas!
In the elementary schools students participated by trying a new item each day and identifying which of Texas produce was used to create the menu item. Students then colored the item and placed it on a fence post in the dining area to show that they had participated in the week's festivities. Many of the students were able to identify the farm fresh produce that was used in their menu items. This project allowed for the students to not only identify their food, but to also connect it to the source, a Texas farm. It is our hope that our students take this knowledge and learn to make healthier food choices with an understanding of where their food originates and the impact it has on our local economy...
