USDA Awards $100,000 To Kansas Schools
11/20/2013

Kansas is receiving a $100,000 federal grant to promote the use of locally grown food in schools and agriculture education programs.

The grants were announced Tuesday to 42 states and 71 programs nationwide by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

Kansas Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman says eight school districts that have agriculture education programs will be selected to receive $12,500 each to develop the means for getting local food products served in school meal programs.

The goal will be to get a minimum of two locally produced food items served in school cafeterias each month. Other agriculture education materials and workshops will be required as part of receiving the grant.

Kansas districts with significant percentages of participation in free and reduced-priced lunches will be given preference in the state's selection.
