Farm To School Tours Today 23 Sep 13

September is Farm to School Month in Minnesota, and State Ag Commissioner Charlie Poster will be stopping in Lafayette, Walnut Grove, and Tracy today (MON) to learn how those school districts use Farm to School Grant funds.  Poster will be touring the school kitchens and discussing the school lunch programs. He’ll be at the Lafayette Charter School shortly after 10am, Walnut Grove Elementary at 12:30, and the Tracy School at 1:30. The Farm to School Grant Program aims to increase sales of locally grown agricultural products while helping schools offset the costs of installing new equipment or making upgrades so they can handle more products.
