The Put Local On Your Tray program helps Connecticut school districts serve and celebrate locally grown products. We work together to build a culture of health in the cafeteria, celebrate school nutrition programs, and support local agriculture.
Participating in Put Local on Your Tray means planning for one or more "Local Tray Days" on a school menu this year.
A Local Tray Day has two components:
(1) Adding the locally grown item to the menu at least once
(2) Promoting the locally grown item using posters, stickers, newsletters
Note: We strongly recommend and encourage conducting a cafeteria taste test prior to your Local Tray Day.
Resources and technical assistance may be available to help you plan these!
All participants are eligible to receive an award from the School Nutrition Association of Connecticut at the End of Year Banquet, May 17th, 2017!
