September's Tasting Time is yellow grape tomatoes.

They have been in season all summer, we can't wait for students to try them!
How do we select "Tasting Time" foods?
Many teachers have asked how foods are selected. UC CalFresh selects foods that are low in fat and sodium and high in vitamins, minerals and fiber.
UC CalFresh also selects foods that students may not have seen or tried before. We make every effort to select foods available to students in their local grocery stores, balancing availability with the opportunity to expose students to unique items they may not have seen before.
Yellow grape tomatoes can be purchased at most grocery stores during the summer months. However, they may not be available year round.
