Whatcom Farm to SchoolThe Whatcom Farm-to-School Program, with support from the Whatcom Community Foundation is hosting a contest for all students in Whatcom County in grades kindergarten through 12th.

The Farm-to-School Harvest of the Month Program is featuring locally grown kale in March. Kale will be served for lunch in all Whatcom County public schools. This contest is designed to complement and promote this endeavor. It’s time to dispel the myth that kids don’t eat kale.

The contest asks participants to choose as many ways as they can think of to eat kale and document it. Photos should be taken of participants in the act of eating the vegetable that grows year-round in Whatcom County — one photo for each of the different ways kale has been eaten.

Submissions are due by 5:00 p.m. April 4, 2012. All entries must be accompanied by the “Kids Eat Kale Contest Submission Form” found online at www.whatcomfarmtoschool.org.

A $50 cash prize will be awarded to the winner in each category. Plus, winners will have their photo(s) published in the 2012 Harvest Dinner Cookbook, and receive a free copy of the cookbook.
