We had a great time serving up local green beans, grown on Czajkowski Farm in Hadley, MA, for Local Lunch Thursday at the Martin Luther King K-8 in Dorchester last week.  Local Lunch Thursdays are part of the BPS Farm to School Initiative – every Thursday in all 44 of our cafeteria schools, local produce is served as part of the lunch menu.  We’ve served collard greens, onions, butternut squash, carrots, strawberries, tomatoes, and even rutabaga!  Thanks to Arlene Whyte, the Cafeteria Manager at the King, and her entire staff for a wonderful lunch which also included roast chicken, whole wheat rolls, and fresh fruit:
