Our fourth success story highlights Orange County Schools. The Orange County School Nutrition Program had enthusiastic students serving as interns over the summer. The student interns read children’s books, offered corresponding food crafts, and planned energizing physical fitness activities with youth who participated in the N.C. Summer Nutrition Program. 


To celebrate #NCFarmtoSummer Week, the Orange County School Nutrition Team planned special activities to promote farm to summer. They served strawberries, made strawberry pretzel butterfly food crafts to eat, talked with students about how strawberries are grown, shared info about local farms in Orange County with u-pick strawberries, and conducted gardening activities with students at the Efland Community Center Garden. Orange County Schools support #NCFarmtoSummer and #NCFarmtoSchool! Thanks to all who participated in the #NCFarmtoSummer Challenge! We look forward to next year’s challenge.
