The February Harvest of the Month for the Coulee Region Farm2School program is yogurt! Yogurt is an excellent source of protein, calcium and potassium. Did you know that regular yogurt is usually unstrained resulting in a smoother consistency, while Greek yogurt is strained to have the liquid removed resulting in a thicker consistency? Try both to see what you like best! All 33 schools participating in Farm2School will be featuring local yogurt on their menu throughout the month of February.
