The USDA recently announced the third annual Turnip the Beet awards, which recognize outstanding summer meal program sponsors who distinguish themselves with high quality meals that are appetizing, appealing, and wholesome. Congratulations to South Bay Union School District for reeving the Gold Turnip the Beet Award!
