Ind. receives farm-to-school grant from the USDA

The USDA has awarded the Indiana State Department of Health a 2018 grant to help support farm-to-school programs in the state, WBIW reports.

The department will receive $98,468 over two years to support the Indiana State Department of Agriculture's Indiana Grown program, which is responsible for promoting local ingredients in school meals and other farm-to-school events.

The grant money will go toward creating resources and a promotional campaign to help districts incorporate fresh ingredients in meals. It will also be used to support and grow the state’s 11 farm-to-school action committees, which are made up of school foodservice directors and others in the community who help with related projects at the school and district level.
