Farm-to-School Movement Gaining Ground, says Cornell Expert
While the farm-to-table movement is a growing phenomenon in the US, a Cornell Cooperative Extension educator, is making a push towards the effort. Most industrial kitchen equipment in schools are reduced to freezers, refrigerators, and microwaves. While kids are getting their daily nutritional value, their meals lack fresh and local foods. In an effort to gain support and funding from communities, administrators, faculty, and parents, Cornell University Extension hosts a program called Adirondack Harvest dedicated to connecting farmers and consumers in order to provide education and, in turn, fresher meals for schools.
