Fish-to-school program takes off in Alaska

Program also includes education component about sustainable seafood.

April 16—Fish is the latest food to make the trip from "farm" to table at Alaska schools.

The Fish to Schools program was implemented at the middle school level at Sitka schools last school year. This school year is the first full year, with Fish to Schools at the elementary and middle school levels, and the program beginning at the alternative high school in February. The program earned the Best Farm to School award in Alaska last year. The goal for the programs is for residents, starting at a young age, to be more connected with their local, sustainable food sources.
