October is National Farm to School Month. Farm to school is a way to get more local foods into school cafeterias. As part of this, Friday October 5th at 10:00 AM is the Crunch Heard ‘Round the Commonwealth, a celebration developed to highlight the Virginia Farm to School program. Join us by taking a bite out of a Virginia grown apple at 10:00 AM. The week of October 15th through October 19th is National School Lunch Week with a theme of School Lunch: Lots 2 Love. Visit your local school cafeteria and have lunch with the students. Call ahead so the cafeteria can plan accordingly.
