Ravalli Head Start is participating in Montana Harvest of the Month!!

Each month, our preschool along with other participating centers, K-12 schools, and healthcare facilitates throughout Montana will showcase one locally or Montana grown or raised food by

a) serving it in a meal or snack,

b) offering taste tests to children, and

c) doing educational activities.

The two primary goals for this program are to expose students to new, healthy foods and to support Montana’s farmers and ranchers.

September Food of the Month


This month’s Harvest of the Month is herbs! Herbs are often defined as the leaves and flowers of plants that are used for flavor, fragrance, or medicine. Herbs, including parsley, dill, chives, and mint are easy to grow and offer a wide variety of distinct flavors. You may be familiar with the sweet taste of basil or the tang of cilantro, but how about the piney taste of rosemary?

Many of the herbs commonly used today are native to the Mediterranean region, but wild mint, chives, and beebalm are native to Montana! During the warmer months, Montana herbs are abundant at farmers’ markets and many grocery stores. Try growing your own! Herbs are perfect for growing in the garden, in containers, or indoors on a sunny windowsill. Learn more about herbs through Montana Harvest of the Month!
