D.C. Farm to School Week Kick-Off Event!

All are welcome to the third annual D.C. Farm to School Week kick-off celebration!  It will be an exciting event featuring four local chefs battling to create the tastiest seasonal salad for a panel of esteemed judges. Chefs will use D.C. school garden produce and a pantry of items furnished by Whole Foods to make “top-chef” style salads, engaging an audience of over 200 students and community leaders.  There should be enough for students and attendees to taste, as well!  Student-led tours of the school’s Great Garden of Anacostia will follow.

The event will also commemorate and kick off nationwide celebrations for the first ever National Farm to School Month, designated by a House Resolution passed in November 2010.
