HARVEST OF THE MONTH

On Thursday November 7, 2019, 3rd graders at Hillcrest Elementary participated in FCPS Food and Nutrition Service's 3rd Harvest of the Month Celebration. With the help of our Frederick County Farm to School Partners and Frederick County University of Maryland Extension Office, FCPS Chef Sean Thomson demonstrated how to make a broccoli salad using local organic broccoli from Summer Creek Farm in Thurmont Maryland. A few volunteers got to help make brccoli salad. Students learned about Summer Creek Farm and how broccoli grows. They got to touch, smell and taste broccoli.
