$1.5 million is available for eligible school districts to support the growth of Farm-to-School programs across New York State. The program helps Kindergarten through Grade 12 schools connect with local farmers, increase the use of locally grown food on school menus, and improve student health, while providing increased economic benefits to New York’s farmers. The announcement came during National Farm-to-School Month, which celebrates food education and school meals filled with healthy, local ingredients.
