Elementary students enjoy squash as part of Farm2School menu

Local students are continuing to eat foods grown in our area.

4th graders at Northside and Spence Elementary schools in La Crosse got to eat a squash soup Wednesday.

The recipe comes as part of the Farm2School program run by Get Active La Crosse.
Mayo Clinic Health System’s executive chef says it is important to remind students healthy food knows no season.
“It’s really important to teach our youth to not be afraid to cook in the kitchen and to try new ingredients and new foods because they are the people of our future,” said Heather VanHorn, Executive Chef with Mayo Clinic Health System.

This month’s Harvest of the Month recipe is available at getacitvelacrosse.org.
