The community newsletters are intended to complement the other monthly elements and extend Harvest of the Month activities from the school to community. These newsletters can be appropriately used in many settings, including retail outlets and by projects of the Network’s Campaigns and Programs (Latino Campaign, African American Campaign, Retail Program, Worksite Program). Each newsletter includes:

  • General information on the importance of nutrition and physical activity in maintaining good health.
  • Shopper’s tips for selecting and storing the featured produce.
  • Healthy serving ideas featuring the fruit or vegetable.
  • Nutrition information about the featured produce.
  • Recommendations for daily amounts of fruits and vegetables by gender, age, and physical activity level.
  • Ideas for being more physically active that are appropriate for the season.
