“I think the farm to school program is important
because it brings together the community with the
volunteers, with all the kids, and the parents and
grandparents come in sometimes. It gets people talking
about fresh food, trying new recipes, sharing recipes.
It brings people together.”
Silvie Keen, Program Coordinator
