Harvest of the month

February’s Harvest of the Month is radial RICE!

This month, students and staff will sample “Mexican Rice” during their lunchtime taste tests. The rice was locally produced by Riceland Foods growers in Arkansas. Arkansas is the largest rice grower in the country- in our state alone, we grow half of the rice that is grown in the United States! Rice grows in every continent in the world, except for Antarctica. It’s a very important crop in  many countries, and humans have been eating it for 5,000 years!

If students or staff like the recipe it can be found on our Seed to Student Facebook page, our Child Nutrition Department website and in the staff newsletter. The recipe was also sent home to families via PeachJar.
