September Message from Pomptonian Food Service

Dear Parents,
Welcome back! September menus are available online. Please visit Summit Public Schools – School Nutrition And Fitness.

Jersey Fresh Farm to School Week is September 23rd-27th. In 2010 legislation was established to celebrate Farm to School week the last week in September, to highlight local farms and their connections to Pre-K to 12th grade. When produce is grown locally, it is picked at the peak of ripeness, instead of being harvested early to be shipped and distributed. Pomptonian will be celebrating with Bartlett Pears from Weaver’s Orchard and Beets from Dagele Brother’s Produce on September 24th, with a Beet, Pear, and Blue Cheese Crumble Salad.

Did you know Bartlett Pears are a good source of Vitamin C, which is known as the “Antioxidant Vitamins?” Why? Because Vitamin C prevents oxidative damage, is essential for cell growth and repair, needed for normal metabolism and tissue repair, proper immune functioning and protection against infectious diseases. Beets’ rich hue comes from the pigment betalain, an antioxidant. Also,Beets contain the amino acid betaine (a building blocks of protein), which some studies suggest can reduce fat accumulation in the liver.

Pomptonian, our Food Service Provider hosts a Farm to Tray Program in our cafeteria. Each month a local fruit and vegetable will be highlighted. Throughout the journey, interesting facts will be provided by Produce Pete and Pomptonian’s Corporate Dietitian, Toni Bowman, MBA, RDN. Stay tuned for what is to come in October!

Pomptonian is pleased to be Summit’s food service provider, and we appreciate your comments and suggestions. You can reach us at Pomptonian@summit.k12.nj.us.
