MD Homegrown School Lunch Week, Progress On BMS Project, SWAC Instrument Barn

Corn on the Cob, Green Beans on Menu During Maryland Homegrown School Lunch Week Celebrate Maryland Homegrown School Lunch Week in Wicomico Schools with fresh local corn on the cob (Wednesday), green beans (Thursday) and "butter fries" (Sept. 26) -- butternut squash cut to resemble French fries, baked, and lightly seasoned with cinnamon. Students in hundreds of public schools across the state are getting a taste of fresh, Maryland-grown and produced food in their lunches during the fifth annual Maryland Homegrown School Lunch Week, Sept. 17-21. Fresh local fruits and vegetables have been served in school cafeterias since the start of the school year when available from local farmers. These items are on our school menu marketed as local items, and all are from farms in Wicomico County or other Maryland counties. "Since the beginning of school, we have been serving local produce to our students based on its availability," said Eric T. Goslee, Food Services Supervisor. More
