Food is Elementary, a program that TCSDF wholeheartedly supports, is underway in our elementary school! Here are some pictures of fourth graders preparing food — nutritious and beautiful! This past Monday they prepared a dish called Three Sisters with garlic, tomatoes, basil, spinach, beans and pasta. They then got to sample it in the cafeteria at lunch on Tuesday! Reportedly some students returned for thirds and others have repeated the dish at home with their families! All third and fourth graders are enjoying learning about and preparing nutritious foods this spring. As they did this week, students will get to sample the foods in the cafeteria thanks to the generous participation of our cafeteria staff who are working with the program to help with moving the recipes from classroom to the cafeteria. In addition to this the students will also have the opportunity to work in the garden.
Stay tuned for more information on this program and thank you for your support of TCSDF! Together we are bringing valuable programs to the students of the Trumansburg Central School District!
