FARM TO SCHOOL

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced this week more than $5 million in grants for projects that support the Agriculture Department’s efforts to connect school cafeterias with local farmers and ranchers through its Farm to School Program. In Illinois, SIU will be partnering with the Illinois Farmers Market Association, U of I Extension, and the Illinois State Board of Education to host regional farm to school conferences in Carbondale, Springfield, and Chicago.
