Buffalo district moves ahead with farm to school lunch plan

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo school district is inviting the public to get involved in efforts to put locally grown food into school lunchrooms.

A public information session about a new Farm-to-School initiative is scheduled for Tuesday evening.

District officials on Monday announced that Buffalo’s been awarded a $45,000 grant from the United States Department of Agriculture to better connect school cafeterias and students with area farmers and ranchers.

Supporters say the Farm to School Program is a way to teach students about nutrition while supporting the local economy.
