Farm to School Month Celebration at NRP

Fayette County Schools celebrated Farm to School month (October) today with a lunch meal featuring from scratch cooked and locally raised BBQ chicken from Pyne Mountain Farm in Monroe County and Rainbow Farm in Summers County, and cucumbers & tomatoes from Gritt's at Midway Green Houses in Putnam County!  Cooks across the county also made the students favorite from scratch rolls.  The occasion also brought visitors: Angel Wallace Farm to School Coordinator from the WV Dept of Agriculture, Bekki Leigh Coodinator in the Office of Child Nutrition from the Dept of Education, and Kathryn Eckman Food Access Coordinator from New Roots Farm.  Angel brought stickers, book marks, and window clings celebrating Farm to School month and Bekki and Kathryn helped pass them out along with helping serve the meal at New River Primary School.  Most importantly the students we ask about the meal said they enjoyed it.
