Harvest of the Month: Zucchini

Mid-August already! Can you believe it?

Harvest of the Month is zucchini! Keep an eye out for zucchini in numerous, tasty items at the University Hospital Four Lakes Cafe with specials at the salad bar, Farm to Table Station and many more!

Our purpose in bringing your attention to the fruits and vegetables of the season is to connect you with more sustainable and local seasonal foods. We can each do our part to reduce our impact on the environment. 

Purchasing foods grown closer to home means fewer miles are traveled and less fuel is used in transportation. Eating foods when they are in season also gives you the best flavors and highest level of nutrition.

Can you commit to purchasing 2-3 seasonal items this week?
