Each month the Wellness Committee arranges for students to taste-test farm fresh and/or healthy prepared foods as part of its Fresh Food of the Month campaign. This month's featured food item was sweet potatoes grown locally on Briar Creek Farms.

Pictured below are Middle School students enjoying the "super food" during their lunch period.
