November is kick off month for the QAE Cafe, and this week at Monday Morning Meeting our Kindergarten classes will proudly present.....WINTER SQUASH (with a focus on pumpkins)! As part of our QAE Cafe program, a different produce item will be sponsored each month by one of our grade levels. The produce will always be something that's seasonal and can be grown locally.
Class Sponsorship of a produce item includes: Presentation at Monday Morning Meeting to the whole school; serving a food item made from the sponsored produce at Friday school lunches; and distributing a take-home handout to all students.
All students will be asked to complete the handout and sample the produce item in type of dish during the week-- with parents signing off on the handout.
Also, if you or your family has a favorite dish made from the produce item-- this month, from any winter squash-- please send it in to us! We're compiling a QAE Families Cookbook this year and would love to include your recipe. You can attach it to the handout that our child returns to school or email it to Elizabeth Kruse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
