The school district has recently implemented a new food program called “California Thursday”. The reason behind the name is to serve the freshest fruit and vegetables possible on Thursdays. By doing this, Woodlake schools are supporting local and state farmers. The food that is served on “California Thursday” is 100% grown in California. This is also a way to celebrate California and all this state has to offer. By serving food fresh from California, it helps diminish the carbon footprint that is found in the food. It started off as a once a month event, but the district is hoping to make it an every Thursday event. So far it has been successful, and it will be interesting to see how this event can impact the students and staff of Woodlake. Woodlake, let’s take the time to appreciate the food California has to offer!
