VIDEO Did you know February’s Maine Harvest of the Month is Root Vegetables? Our district nutrition director ordered beets from Village Side Farm in Freedom Maine for all the school’s cafeterias. 5th grade students at CASS worked with their FoodCorps Service member and 5th grade teacher Lindsay Noyes to figure out some great new ways to serve beets!The cafeteria listened and put students' top two choices on the menu for February: Oven roasted root vegetables will be available every Wednesday in February and the Beet Bean Burger will be available on February 25th as an alternative to the Salisbury Steak.
