Harvest of the Month is a local food promotion campaign offered by our Nutrition Education team that promotes a different Rhode Island grown food each month in school cafeterias and meal sites across the state. The goal of the program is to celebrate local foods, expose eaters to seasonal foods and new recipes, encourage healthy choices, and support local farmers in our community.
Harvest of the Month also provides a unique opportunity for schools and meal sites to gain positive recognition for their meal programs by celebrating their commitment to serving locally grown foods. Harvest of the Month is designed to make it easy for purchasers to source, serve, and promote locally grown foods and we will continue to provide technical assistance and support whenever possible.
