New project pushes N.D. farm-to-school programs

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - A new project is pushing for locally-grown food to be served in North Dakota schools.

State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says it's important for students to know where their food comes from, and students at schools with strong farm-to-school-programs eat more school-prepared meals, waste less food and are more willing to try locally grown fruits and vegetables.

A $75,000 grant is being used to pay for the program.
