Calling all Georgia [farm to table] schools! The USDA wants to visit with their Farm to School Tactical Team in support of local food systems.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is making a national push for farm to table programs in schools and is accepting applications from schools across the country who already have sustainable food programs underway in their local communities. The goal is to study the start-up, struggles, and success stories of current programs in order to develop a model for others to follow. The long-term goal is to then help school districts implement their own farm to school programs with assistance reaching out to local farms, communicating with stakeholders, and identifying and overcoming obstacles.
