Pellston Elementary School hosts back-to-school farmers market pop-up

Pellston Elementary School in Pellston, Mich., hosted a farmers market pop-up at its back-to-school night, News-Review reports.

The pop-up was developed through a partnership between the elementary school’s district and nonprofit FoodCorps and provided an opportunity for students and their families to try an apple and kale salad made with local ingredients.

Teachers and staff were also given vouchers to purchase items from the market through an anonymous donation.

Pellston began working with FoodCorps last year, and through the partnership has been able to offer a variety of programming aimed at creating a culture of health, such as Try Day Friday, a monthly event where students get to sample and vote on a dish made with ingredients from the month's harvest.
