“Trista Scheuerlein recently wrote an article in the fall 2008 issue of Flavor Magazine entitled, ‘Teach (and Feed) Your Children Well.‘ The article highlights the work of Harrisonburg City Public Schools, Rappahannock County Public Schools, and other school systems efforts to utilize and serve local food and farm products in school cafeterias as part of a farm-to-school program.These schools efforts show pairing local foods with school cafeterias can be both educational and delicious.” – from Shenandoah Valley Buy Fresh, Buy Local’s facebook page
