According to the USDA, an increasing number of schools are sourcing locally grown foods for their school meals and snacks and providing complementary educational activities that emphasize food, farming, and nutrition. As a producer or food manufacturer, large or small, this means that there are market opportunities in your own backyard and a chance for your bounty to nourish children in your community. Attend this session to learn about how you can play a role in supplying local products to schools to serve during breakfast, lunch, snack times and supper, as well as educating students about food and agriculture.
