More locally-grown food for student lunch programs

Posted By INTELLIGENCER STAFF

Two local secondary schools initiated a project this year to bring more locally grown and produced food to their nutrition programs. The program is being funded through a $5,000 grant from Trenval's Local Initiatives Development Program to Food For Learning.

"The agricultural community in our area is thriving, yet many students remain disconnected from this industry," said Food For Learning co-ordinator Kellie Brace.
