USDA Announces Additional Support to Help Schools Buy Local

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack yesterday announced grants for 71 projects spanning 42 states and the District of Columbia that support the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) efforts to connect school cafeterias with local farmers and ranchers through its Farm to School Program. A partnership between the Northeast Iowa Food and Fitness Initiative (NIFF) and Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission (UERPC) were lucky to be one of the recipients.
