Culinary Insights | Students from the Rising Tide Public Charter School of Plymouth | 4:00
October is National Farm to School Month, a time to celebrate the connections that are happening all over the country between schools and local food! To help us celebrate, teachers Sarah Vendetti and Ixtla Arceo-Witzl of the Rising Tide Public Charter School of Plymouth will be bringing students in their “Farm to Fork” exposition program to teach us how to prepare a tomato, basil and leek soup, locally sourced and available at our market this week.
“I have found that the participation of children in the growing, harvesting and preparing process of local foods has had a tremendous impact on their food choices…” – Martha M. Stone, PFM Co-directer and local foods advocate.
