Today we tested the scones for our entrepreneur project . We did chocolate chip scones, blueberry scones, and herb cheese scones. After making some adjustments we baked off some more. We also made signs for when we sell them tomorrow. Which will be at SLU's garden off Compton and we also will be selling herb tea. We will be there from 11:00am to 1:00pm.. Money collected well go to SLU's scholarships. PLEASE VISIT :-)
Healthy Eating with Local Produce (HELP) is a Farm to School program
dedicated to bringing fresh local foods into schools and supporting local
agriculture. We have developed relationships with area farmers to provide whole fresh foods to Maplewood Richmond Heights School District through the Salus Processing Center. HELP uses the processing center to turn food into items that can be stored for year-round use in the cafeteria. In Year One, there were four primary foods used for processing: apples, tomatoes, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. Some of our favorite processed items are tomatoes into marinara, sweet potatoes into sweet potato fries, and apples into applesauce. HELP works closely with school foodservice staff to create delicious healthy foods for students while educating them about the benefits of a more healthful diet. The HELP grant is designed to test if food processing and distribution can be fiscally sustainable for school districts.
