Pierre elementary schools are opening the minds of students by appealing to their stomachs with a health-oriented program called Harvest of the Month.

Forward-thinking Californians originally came up with the concept, and five years ago Tiffany Sanchez brought it to St. Joseph Elementary after she heard about it during a health class in Napa Valley. Since then, it’s spread to all four Pierre elementary schools and Pierre Indian Learning Center, as well as other schools across the state.

    What a great story....I used to work for the school lunch program and I have had the opportunity to go and see the new things they are doing....I couldn't belive the amount of fresh fruit and vegetable now offered the children...especially at the high school and middle school. I understand about the elementary schools only getting the one choice and it will probably be that way until they get a Central Kitchen in all the schools, right now they have to rely on the GMMS central kitchen for their food, but maybe once they all get a full working kitchen they can do the same things that are going on in the bigger schools.....wonderful program Harvest of the Month! I do think that the "Bar" as Mrs. Sanchez calls it should be set at 'HOME", not at the schools, home is where our children learn their life time habits, and eating fresh fruits and vegetables should be a life-time habit started at home.
