Farm-Fresh Food Will Be Coming to Buffalo Schools Soon
Fresh is really not associated with anything when you think about cafeteria food at schools. When I was getting lunch at school, the menu was very limited and everything looked liked it started of frozen then made it to my plate.
It's a good thing that New York state announced $1.5 million in grants to support farm-fresh food in schools. They announced this yesterday and will support 18 different farm-to-school initiatives that serve more than 420,000 students in NY, this all according to Buffalo News. Schools can use this loot to get local fruits and veggies and hire coordinators for the schools that directly deal with the farmers.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, had this to say about the new program
"money will help schools provide fresh, healthy food to growing students while at the same time supporting local farmers".
I think this is really a win, win for everyone.
