VIDEO: Local Food for Local Schools

September 26, 2011 By Tom Niemisto, Video Production Specialist

This September is the first official Farm to School Month in Minnesota.  It's a new program that follows through on an old idea - serving local produce in Minnesota schools is best for nutrition and economic development.

The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy is a facilitator with local farmers and school districts who want to get more involved in Farm to School lunch menus.
