TREE TO TRAY PROGRAM:
Do you or someone you know have fruit bearing trees in the yard?  Then be a part of Unity School’s exciting Tree to Tray program. Parents can drop off bags or boxes of local, organically grown fruits that come from your own families’ trees.  Unity’s Food Service Director, Lori Robbins, will be using the fruit from our trees, and turning it into delicious meals that end up on our children’s lunch trays.  So, those wonderful avocados that are filling your trees right now will be used to make fresh, homemade guacamole for taco day.  And the limes, oranges and lemons make wonderful, flavored water for our children and for family events at school.  Donating these items helps expose our children to food they may not normally eat.  Fresh food is a crucial part of our children’s health and provides the nutrients and energy they need to fully participate in all of the educational and enrichment activities here at Unity.   All fresh produce is welcome!  Each month we will feature the items that are seasonally harvested as a reminder to support this program.  Help us get your extra fruit off your trees and onto our children’s trays!
