Farm to School Week!

November 6, 2012

by: Allison Spain
November 12-16 is Farm to School Week in Virginia! The Farm to School program through VDACS seeks to source food from local farms in meals served at K-12 schools and universities throughout the Commonwealth. This year marks the 4th year of Farm to School week in Virginia, and to celebrate you can help the Local Food Hub by chipping in for healthy school lunches. They are partnering with several local farms to supply grass-fed beef in school lunches in Albemarle County, and they need to raise $500 by November 16! Visit their website at http://localfoodhub.org/chip-in-for-healthy-school-lunch/ and chip in a few dollars to their 2012 Farm to School Fund.
