Utah Harvest Gratitude Day

USBE’s Child Nutrition Programs are thankful for the farmers that grow our food! On Tuesday, November 26, Lincoln Elementary in Granite School District hosted a Harvest Gratitude Day with Governor Gary Herbert, Utah Commissioner of Agriculture Kerry Gibson, and local farmers Thayne and Carrie Tagge and Tyson Roberts. The sixth graders got to hear directly from the farmers about the food they grow for Thanksgiving dinner tables, and all students participated in a kale planting activity. The school cafeteria rounded out the celebration by serving up a delicious lunch of honey-thyme sweet potatoes and pulled chicken sandwiches on homemade buns.
