A Big First Step Forward for Farm to School!
Great news! Today we are a HUGE step closer to helping 3 million more schoolchildren get involved in farm to school programs. That means 3 million kids could soon be eating better at school, digging into bountiful school gardens, and learning from local farmers where their food comes from.
Here’s what just happened: this morning, the Senate Agriculture Committee voted unanimously to send their draft Child Nutrition Act reauthorization on to the full Senate, and it includes 10 million dollars a year – doubled funding! – for farm to school grants nationwide, along with a host of fixes that will help the grant program work better for schools and farmers.
Can you help us THANK Senators who helped champion this issue and encourage the full Senate to move it forward?
