About the Wisconsin Harvest of the Month
The Wisconsin Harvest of the Month is a statewide campaign for schools that encourages students to eat more Wisconsin-grown fruits and vegetables. Each month, schools showcase one seasonal, Wisconsin-grown fruit or vegetable, which allows students to taste, explore, and learn about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables.
