Farm To Cafeteria
Charleston County School District Nutrition Services and the Green Heart Project are excited to be partnering this year for Harvest of the Month. Each month, we will feature a short cooking video that coincides with each month's highlighted South Carolina grown fruit or vegetable. Watch to see how you can make your own stuffed bell peppers at home and make sure to try them in your school cafeteria September, 17!
