In 2010, Congress designated October as National Farm to School Month. This acknowledged and celebrated that farm to school programs are an important way to improve child nutrition, support local economies, and educate children about where their food comes from.
Here in Nebraska, we have many farm to school developments to celebrate this October. When Gov. Pete Ricketts signed a proclamation for Nebraska’s 2016 Farm to School Month yesterday, leaders in Nebraska farm to school stood alongside him.
