Join Put Local On Your Tray in East Hartford as they "Dip Into Summer" at Free Summer Meal Sites throughout July (at Goodwin Park and McAuliffe Park).

Try seasonal produce such as cherry tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber, blueberries, and more, all served alongside delicious dip, and learn more about the farm where the food came from! Once you've tried the locally grown fruit or vegetable, you'll have the opportunity to come back and vote on if you "Loved It, Liked It, or Tried It", and everyone will get a "Dip Into Summer" sticker, activity book, and crayons. All children, parents, and guardians alike are welcome to try what Put Local On Your Tray is serving!

Put Local On Your Tray is a program through UConn Extension that helps connect school districts to nearby farms and locally sourced fruits and vegetables.
