Fruit and Veggie of the Month
With the start of a new school year, Ken-Ton UFDS will once again have a featured Fruit and Veggie of the Month. Each month we will select a fruit and veggie to highlight. As a part of the program, students will learn about the benefits of the foods in school, have an opportunity to try them as a part of the lunch program and use the recipe on the back of the lunch calendar to make a fun recipe at home.
