We know Pure Maple is real, it’s good, and it’s good for you! But eating well starts with education, and that’s precisely what the folks at Nourish Farms are doing to resolve the issue of food illiteracy in their community. Nourish Farms offers an after school program where students and participants sample a healthy snack based on the Harvest of the Month, and March was Maple month! Tune in and be inspired by educators and chefs in southeastern Wisconsin as we visit an elementary school in Plymouth, Wisconsin where we’ll join Parkview Elementary students for an afternoon maple snack and hear what THEY have to say. As fellow maple producers, it’s our mission to #FIGHTFAKE and abolish the flavored corn syrups of the world, one child at a time.
