N.Y. district receives grant to fuel farm-to-school push
Sidney Central School District in Sidney, N.Y., has received $58,783 from the state to improve its farm-to-school program, The Daily Star reports.
The grant will be used to aid in appointing a farm-to-school coordinator and assistant who will help source local farm products for 10 districts in the region for NY Thursday, an initiative where cafeterias attempt to serve meals made entirely by local ingredients every Thursday.
The funding is part of a $12 million award spread among 12 districts throughout the state by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
