Virginia Harvest of the Month (HOM) is a campaign to promote seasonal eating, increase fruit and vegetable consumption, and support local economies.  Sponsored by the Virginia Department of Education's Office of School Nutrition Programs (VDOE SNP). 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that children ages two to 18 are eating more fruits but not more vegetables and are not meeting consumption target for fruits or vegetables (CDC, 2014).  The objective of HOM is to increase consumption of seasonal, Virginia Grown fresh fruits and vegetables to children establish healthy eating habits to last a lifetime. 

Washington County Public School's  Nutrition Department is happy to participate in this program.
