You too can beat the rush and begin prepping for fall by working prior to the start of the fall semester. 

National Whole Grain Sampling Day

Whole Grain Sampling Day is held annually on the last Wednesday of March. Which means on March 28th you can expect to see some delicious offerings in your closest Market Place. Initiated by the Whole Grains Council, it is a great opportunity for individuals to explore the many different whole grains that can be easily included in your daily diet. These foods can provide an excellent addition of key nutrients, such as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
