Welcome to the Illinois Harvest of the Month website, the online portal for schools and farmers to learn how to take part in this exciting program. Each month, schools in the program feature a different local food that students will love to eat. School districts can register to participate, and then gain access to curriculum activities, recipes, drag and drop tools and more. Click on each food to learn about what’s included!
Illinois Harvest of the Month is a program that relies on strong partners to make sure local foods get into Illinois schools. Here is a list of our program partners.
