VIDEO: Farm to School in Wayzata

January 27, 2011 By Tom Niemisto, Video Production Specialist

School districts are writing the recipe for nutrition in cafeterias in Minnesota.  The newly re-authorized Child Nutrition Act includes federal funding for more fresh fruits and vegetables and local food programs.  

JoAnne Berkenkamp works with local foods policy initiatives at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy in Minneapolis.  She says that Farm to School programs, such as the one at Wayzata Middle School, is smart policy that will help connect and educate students with their local food sources and support small- to mid-sized farmers year round.

Mary Anderson coordinates the lunch program for the Wayzata district.  As the former president of the Minnesota School Nutrition Association, she hopes Farm to School will combat the childhood obesity epidemic and teach students about healthy eating habits.
