Island Grown Harvest of the Month is a program that highlights a locally available crop each month of the school year in school cafeterias, restaurants, and grocery stores. The goal is to help children, their care-givers, and the broader community experience healthy, seasonal, whole-foods based meals, while supporting local and regional farmers.
And we’re now doing a HoM cooking show on MVTV! It will air in the fall, and people will also be able to see videos on our website. It’s called “Katie’s Harvest of the Month Kitchen.”
