Dairy Princess & baby calf to visit Greenwood Elementary to help tell tale of farm-to-table journey

February 14th, 2012 · No Comments

Seattle Public Schools just announced that the Washington State Dairy Princess and a baby calf will visit three elementary schools this week to illustrate “dairy’s farm-to-table journey and the benefits of dairy and calcium for children’s growing bodies.”

They’ll be at Greenwood Elementary, 144 NW 80th St., in the cafeteria, from 11:30 a.m. to 12 :30 p.m. on Wednesday. (They’re also visiting Roxhill Elementary today, and Montlake Elementary on Thursday.)

The visit is part of the Washington Grown Harvest of the Month program, designed to engage students in a variety of settings where nutrition education can have the biggest impact — the classroom, cafeteria and home. Each month, a Washington-grown item will be showcased; in February, the highlight is on dairy products.
