To continue celebrating Farm to School Month we would like to thank our local farmer, Martin, with Four Seasons Farm for providing Persimmons to one of our schools. You have full PERSIMMON to bite into the following facts: This mighty berry is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamins B, iron, potassium and manganese. They also contain beneficial plant compounds like dietary fiber, tannins, and flavonoids. The health benefits of persimmons include ability to improve eye health, reduce signs of aging, prevent various types of cancer, improve digestion, boost your immune system, lower cholesterol, increase your metabolism, promote weight loss, strengthen your bones, boost cognitive function, lower blood pressure, and take care of your skin.
Mason County Schools finished National School Lunch Week with a Scratch Cook Training made possible through a grant provided by the WVDE. Cooks prepared many new recipes for lunch such as Chicken Bacon Ranch Subs, Chocolate Caramel Moo Brew, The Hulk Smoothie, Sweet Chili Chicken Wraps, and Chicken Lo Mein with Vegetables, just to name a few. We would like to thank our cooks for the passion and hard work they put forth every day to provide sound nutrition to our children. Fun Food Fact: Did you know kid’s favorites are now offered in healthier versions? Pizza is served on whole-grain crust with low-fat cheese and reduced sodium tomato sauce! The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 enabled major improvements to school meals, bringing school meals in line with the latest nutrition science. By offering students familiar foods that are whole grain-rich, low in sodium and low in saturated fat, the school cafeteria is balancing nutrition and consumer demand.
Today schools that qualified for the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program received locally sourced pumpkins. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables to children at eligible elementary schools. The goal of the FFVP is to introduce children to fresh fruits and vegetables, to include new and different varieties, and to increase overall acceptance and consumption of fresh, unprocessed produce among children. The FFVP also encourages healthier school environments by promoting nutrition education. Students at these schools were provided with an educational handout and will learn how to roast their own pumpkin seeds! Let's thank our local farmers, Mr. Wallbrown and Mr. Foglesong, for making this possible and to celebrate National Farm to School Month. #farmtoschool National School Lunch Week, Day 3, Fun Food Fact: Pumpkin and squash seeds provide 33 grams of protein per 100 gram serving. #nslw22
This month is National Farm to School Month, and we have exciting things happening in Mason County Schools! Today's highlight is Leon Elementary.

Students were able to enjoy Kale Chips made from their very own garden! #farmtoschool Day 2 of National School Lunch Week, Fun Food Fact: Eating more vitamin A-rich foods like broccoli, KALE, spinach and kiwi may help preserve memory and prevent vision problems. Load up and increase your brain power! #nslw22
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) serves nearly 30 million children every school day. President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week (NSLW) in 1962 to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom. #NSLW22 will be celebrated October 10-14, 2022 Check out the Fruity Flatbread offered to Mason County Student's for Breakfast!
