Taste Washington Day

​The Tacoma School District and the WSDA Farm-to School Program have partnered to feature Washington-grown foods in our school meals. From apples, tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuces in fresh salads.  This state-wide event is a great opportunity for students, teachers, and parents to consider where their food comes from, how it is produced and the benefits of a healthy diet.  Tacoma School District students have the opportunity to eat unlimited Wahington fruits and vegetables daily.

Many of our foods are grown locally or within Washington State. Here are some of our suppliers:
