LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- During the annual Harvest Day and Soup Day at the end of September, Meadow Pond Elementary School students harvested and prepared vegetables, providing the youngsters an opportunity to see a delicious meal at every stage.

The Harvest Day allowed students in every grade level at the Katonah-Lewisboro School District building to head outdoors to the school’s garden, which boasts a number of fresh vegetables and herbs. Students in each class were responsible for harvesting a specific item during their Harvest Day, followed by some preparation time in the classroom.

With guidance from organizing teachers Jacqueline Kovatch and Keli Mazzoni, along with PTA volunteers, students learned how to wash and cut the vegetables into appropriate sizes for soup.

The following day, students were able to enjoy the fresh vegetables in homemade soups during lunchtime. They enthusiastically pointed out the vegetables in the soup that they had helped to prepare and eagerly asked for second helpings.
