Northeast School Taste Test

Healthy Waltham and the Waltham Public Schools kicked off our test taste program at the Northeast Elementary School in September 2008.  On the menu:  roasted summer squash, served with tomatoes and fresh herbs.  The squash that was prepared in the Northeast cafeteria was locally grown – by Waltham’s last remaining farm, the Waltham Fields Community Farm on Beaver Street.  Healthy Waltham passed out samples for kids to try; tasting is optional, but encouraged.  The goal of the taste tests is to promote new vegetable dishes in a fun way.  The event coincided with the MA Harvest for Students Week, a week celebrating locally grown produce.

The event was covered by WCVB TV Channel 5 as well as the Daily News Tribune.
