There is something different coming from the kitchen at North Winn school this year. October is Farm to School Month in Iowa to celebrate and encourage farmers who produce some of the food we eat for school meals.
School cook and Food Service Director Ellen Vance now purchases vegetables and milk from local sources! We are eating salads and other veggies from Canoe Creek Produce, Humble Hands Harvest and Patchwork Green farms in Winneshiek County.
Our breakfast, lunch and snack-time milk comes from Homestead Dairy in Waukon, and our yogurt is from Country View Dairy in Hawkeye. Soon we will be eating apples from Peake’s orchard near Waukon.
