May Harvest of the Month: Strawberries

Starting to taste like summer! Yesterday students at all six of Charlottesville’s elementary schools snacked on red, ripe, juicy, delicious strawberries as part of Harvest of the Month. The strawberries were sourced through the Local Food Hub and grown by wonderful Virginia farmers around our area. The strawberries were the most delicious, perfectly-ripe berries ever! As is the case everyone month, the snack distribution was quite the team effort! Thank you to all of the CCS kitchen staff, volunteers, and Garden Coordinators who helped wash literally thousands of strawberries for the students!
