Alaska Grown Day | September 25
This is the day the GCS cafeteria serves food that is primarily grown in Alaska! Since the goal is to get students excited about the food Alaska has to offer, we would love to have them get involved by picking their own veggies and bringing them in! The produce can come from the many local Farmers Markets, Pyrah’s u-pick farm in Palmer, or even your own garden! Like to chop veggies? We need you, too! If you’re interested in helping with any of these, please sign up with this link: http://bit.ly/AlaskaGrown2019. Most importantly, don’t forget to order lunch on September 25th and enjoy the Alaska bounty! If students wear an Alaska Grown shirt/sweatshirt on Alaska Grown Day, they’ll receive a bonus with their lunch! See Jennifer McGovern or email her at email@example.com with questions.
