George Swanson, Laraway's Land Steward, has been busy planting, tending and harvesting produce from our large and bountiful garden. Food items were carefully planned with our cafeteria staff to insure high nutritional impact and value. Laraway youth are also involved in the planning and planting although they seem to like harvesting the best!
Why does this matter? It matters because over 90% of the children and youth Laraway serves qualify for free or reduced breakfast and lunch per federal guidelines. Providing nutritional breakfasts and lunches during both the academic year and summer programming insure kids' are well-fueled for classroom learning and educational adventures alike.
Laraway is delighted to partner with the Lamoille Chamber of Commerce to host a "Celebrate the Harvest" Mixer on Thursday, October 10th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Visitors will sample foods showcasing items grown on site, view a harvest-themed photo exhibit, participate in an optional scavenger hunt, and mingle with area business leaders.
