Although autumn may look a bit different this year, there are still plenty of chances to celebrate food with diners. Read on for several event opportunities coming up in September and October.
National Farm-to-School Month (All of October)
Last year, elementary schools in Austin Independent School District in Austin, Texas, held an art contest where students submitted their own artwork featuring carrots. Winners received a prize pack and had their artwork featured in the cafeterias each time local carrots were on the menu.

Houston Independent School District celebrated National School Lunch Week last year with a contest where students were challenged to come up with a jingle or rap about the importance of healthy foods. Winners received an iPad or Bluetooth headphones.
