On Friday February 22, Cornerstone Elementary along with Dexter Food and Nutrition and Dexter Farm to School hosted Senator Joe Hune for a special Farm Fresh Food lunch. In addition to serving lots of fresh fruits and veggies, the Dexter Farm to School Program prepared a delicious, raw carrot-orange juice. The carrots for the juice were sourced locally from Tantre Farm in Chelsea. Both students and the Senator gave the juice a “thumbs up”!
The lunch visit was part of a broader initiative to promote state-wide Farm to School programs.
