Harvest of the Month is a downloadable educational program designed to make learning about fruit and veggies easy, tasty, and fun! This versatile set of materials can be used by parents, teachers, or educators to help kids get excited about eating more fruits and vegetables.

How it Works

Harvest of the Month materials are designed for preschool, elementary, or middle schoolers and can be taught in individual classrooms, health classes, PE classes, school assemblies, after school programs, or out of home settings.

These materials, combined with produce sampling, make fruit and veggies interesting and fun. Kids of all ages get to play with new tastes and different textures, bring home ideas to use in the kitchen, and have a reason to ask for more fruit and vegetables.

Each Presentation Includes:

  • Fruit or vegetable history
  • Peak seasons
  • Vitamin and mineral information
  • How to find it at the store

You’ll also Receive:

  • Presenter outline
  • Powerpoint for students
  • Presenter talking points that follow the Powerpoint for students
  • Stickers of the fruit
  • Student handout with recipes that can be taken home

“My child is always very excited to tell me about harvest of the month. It also helps my child try things that he would not normally try at home. I think this program is great!”
— Parent of elementary student


Each fruit and vegetable comes with a set of educational materials including PDFs, Word documents and templates, and PowerPoint presentations. Search by season for quick access to the materials you are looking for.
