From The Bethel Farm To Bethel School Meals

Here is a small sample of the veggies harvested from the Bethel Farm that will be in all Bethel cafeteria salad bars the first week of school.

All Bethel students will be served fresh and tasty produce during the first week of school, and it’s straight from the Bethel Farm.

Harvesting at the Bethel Farm (located between Prairie Mountain and Kalapuya schools) has collected more than 100 pounds of red and green peppers, 240 cucumbers, 175 slicer tomatoes and 168 pints of cherry tomatoes.

It will all go straight to the salad bars at every Bethel school.

This continues the district’s tradition of being a clear leader in serving locally grown, fresh, and healthy foods in school meals.

 

Bethel Awarded $100,000 For Farm To School Program

School garden education and field trips to the Bethel Farm will be funded by a $100,000 USDA grant.

Bethel’s current Farm to School program will be expanded thanks to a $100,000 grant from the USDA.

As the only grant recipient in Oregon, Bethel will be able to bring science-based school garden education and nutrition education to each of its elementary schools.

The grant will also fund student field trips to the Bethel Farm and cooking classes for Kalapuya High School students.

Willamette’s Graphic Arts students will design and develop signage for cafeterias and school menus, and create promotional materials for the Farm to School program and the district’s Try It Thursday program.

Bethel’s Nutrition Services Department also recently received a $5,000 award for its use and promotion of mushrooms in school meals.
