Healthy Eating, Growing Vegetables
Silverthorne Elementary School in Houston, BC has been serving a nutritious hot lunch for the past seven years. Thanks to the Farm to School Grant we have been able to purchase a salad bar for our breakfast and lunch program. Having the salad bar helps to display the food for the students to see and be able to try new things and make healthy choices. The children get to eat the produce that we grow with our tower gardens and they create friendships while they sit and have lunch with their peers. It has been a great experience seeing the different meals that the students will try.
