South Whidbey students celebrate Washington food

Students and the public are invited to celebrate “Taste Washington Day” on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 2 p.m. at the South Whidbey Elementary School gym.

Deep Harvest Farms will feature produce from Whidbey Island, along with produce from the gardens at South Whidbey Academy, Langley Middle School and the South Whidbey Elementary School.

The event aims to establish a connection from the farm to fork. The event also launches October’s theme, Farm to School Month.

The event began in 2010 by the Washington School Nutrition Association to celebrate the abundance of the state’s harvest season and has more than 70 participating school districts around the state.
