Farm-to-school program takes off- WCIV

It may soon become easier for some Lowcountry school children to eat produce right off the farm. The College of Charleston launched its pilot farm-to-school initiative Thursday.

The program’s goal is to provide fresh produce for kids at lunchtime and teach them about farming, as well as boost the local economy. Organizers say the farm-to-school program will create a market for area farmers and make it possible for children to have consistent access to nutrient-packed foods such as locally-grown fruits and vegetables
