Today's "Farm to School" food tasting with Farm Fresh Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Healthy Schools Coalition was a big success!
Over 200 students tried "Roasted Parsnips and Apples" during the K-2nd grade lunches; many even saw a parsnip for the first time! The reviews were mixed but a lot of them raved about the recipe and many were just as excited to try something new with their friends. See the below recipe if your child comes home asking for more.
