One thought on “From Farm to School Lunch: Local Farmers Grow a Healthy Meal”

    Thank you TBP for promoting our local farmers. Florida is the largest producer of fresh produce East of the Mississippi and second overall in the US. Our farms produce crops during the majority of the school year (fall, winter and spring) supplying students with nutritious and balanced meals using locally grown produce. School nutrition programs like those in Sarasota and Manatee should be commended for their efforts to expose children to fresh fruit and vegetables. If you are in other school districts, please encourage your schools to participate (whether or not you have children attending). It is a good thing for our children, farms and local economy.
