It's our Back to School, Farm to School episode of the Food Show. We hear about what schools, the department of agriculture, and local businesses are doing to improve school lunches and support local economies. With guests:
Among many other things at the Oregon Department of Agriculture, Amy helps entrepreneurs navigate the school food market and bring their products into school cafeterias. Both Lola and Lucy run food businesses that have figured out how to adjust their products to meet school nutrition guidelines and get them in the hands and stomachs of school kids.
