The Division of Food Services is proud to contribute to the educational process by providing healthy meals to Philadelphia students daily. Our programs and services prepare students for a quality education by providing the fuel necessary for learning.
June's featured Harvest of the Month is fresh summer squash from Cassaday Farms in Monroeville, NJ. Cassady Farms began in 1985 when Irish immigrant, George Cassaday, and his wife moved to America and farmed a 100 acre parcel. The farm started with chickens, eggs, and hay used for sustaining the Cassaday family. It has since grown to include fresh fruits and vegetables farmed on 1,500 acres of land. Their produce is sold under the Cassaday family label, Pride of the Irish. Students can expect to try the squash cut into coins and served up with ranch dressing for dipping!

It is also associated with lower rates of obesity, lower BMI, and lower probability of being overweight. Encourage your children and students to participate in breakfast today!
