Harvest of the Month

Initially created by one school district to target families for healthier eating habits by eating local foods, Harvest of the Month is now observed in many elementary schools in Fort Bend ISD. This program features a different vegetable or fruit each month, and schools support farm-to-school and farm-to-cafeteria-table by purchasing fresh produce from our local farms.
