Friends of Family Farmers says
Local and state farm to school initiatives abound in Oregon. Last year, the Oregon Legislature appropriated nearly 4.5 million dollars to Oregon's Farm to School Program, split between procurement funds and educational grants. This means that more local products are finding their ways into school lunches, and that garden education programs have more opportunities for funding.

Come out to learn what kids are eating in their cafeterias, what kinds of opportunities exist for school districts wishing to source locally, and how local producers can get involved.

Our panel includes:
~Amy Gilroy- Farm to School Program Manager with the Oregon Department of Agriculture
~Richard Vial- grower of table grapes
~Gitta Grether-Sweeney- Senior Director of Nutrition Services at Portland Public Schools
