Tasting local, farm fresh food is an easy, fun way for children to try new foods and learn about local farms!
Each month, with the help of volunteers, we host Tasting Tables in the cafeterias of Corvallis and Philomath elementary schools, middle schools, and Corvallis High School. Our Tasting Tables feature a seasonally appropriate fruit or vegetable from a local farm.
Information about the featured product is displayed at the school for the month, and family newsletters with more information and a recipe featuring the fruit or vegetable are sent home.
Tasting Tables are made possible by support from the Corvallis School District and community volunteers.
Follow Corvallis Farm to School on Facebook for the most up to date information.
Tasting tables are part of the Oregon Harvest for Schools program’s effort to encourage children to eat more fruits and vegetables and to support Oregon agriculture. Learn more about: Oregon Harvest for Schools
