Nourish Your Roots
L.E. Shaw elementary School is taking part in Nourish Nova Scotia's "Nourish Your Roots" healthy school fundraiser. Support our school and local farmers by selling healthy farm boxes fresh from Longspell Point Farm.
At a sell price of $30 each farm box offers a variety of produce such as carrots, onions, potato, turnip, parsnips and depending on the farm/availability also squash, apples, cranberries, sweet potato and Brussels sprouts with a total value of $30.
Students use provided envelope order forms to track sales and collect money, now through Monday, December 7th (cheques payable to the school). Customers will receive receipt notes with details of their order. All orders must be submitted to your school by December 7th. Your fresh, local produce will be available for pick-up at the school on Tuesday, December 15th, 2:30-5:30pm and Wednesday, December 16th, 6-8pm, just in time for the Holidays.
this fundraiser promotes local food and healthy eating, and raises funds to support health promoting activities at our school. Each farm box will include a brochure with educational tools and resources. Additional resources to help with food preparation and storage, as well as recipes and "kids in the kitchen" ideas are available at nourishns.ca/nourish-your-roots.
