Farm to School News

The View from a School Kitchen

On October 13, Representative Jeff Fortenberry joined students at Norris Public Schools in Firth, Nebraska, to enjoy an apple tasting. This tasting featured apple varieties from Union Orchard in Union, Nebraska. The activity celebrated October as National Farm to School Month and Nebraska Farm to School Month, thanks to a proclamation by Governor Pete Ricketts in September.
