These free educational resources were created for classrooms, cafeterias and families to promote Oklahoma-grown vegetables and fruits offered during meals. The free online resources for cafeterias include posters and recipes promoting a variety of locally-grown specialty crops such as tomatoes, berries, watermelon, squash, asparagus, carrots, cucumbers, peppers, peaches, sweet potatoes, broccoli and radishes.
In addition to the cafeteria resources, classroom teachers can find a Tasteful Harvest outline for each of the crops that highlight classroom recipes, educational facts and history about the crops, lab ideas, lesson activities, literature options and more!
For families looking to incorporate these Oklahoma fruits and vegetables into their daily lives, a handout is also available that includes how to pick the best produce, recipes, crafts and activities to do at home. Each crop has its own handout.
