Pomptonian Food Service is proud to have our own unique Farm-to-Tray program. Each month a local fruit and vegetable is featured in our cafeteria. Posters hung in the cafeteria highlight nutritional benefits and provide background on the farms supplying this local produce. Our staff finds creative ways to prepare the fruit and vegetable of the month, challenging students to think about food differently. Our cafeterias feature not only local produce, but also local milk and bread regularly. Farm-to-School programs influence sustainable healthy eating behaviors. When provided with wholesome, fresh produce more students demonstrate a willingness to try new foods and healthier options.
