Truman Hosts Local Foods Workshop

In an effort to increase the use of locally grown foods, Truman will host a free “Missouri Farm to School” workshop from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Jan. 21 in the Student Union Building Activities Room.

“Missouri Farm to School” helps connect schools and universities with farmers. By using more locally grown food, schools can increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables and create new market opportunities for farmers.

The workshop will include first-hand accounts from farmers, food service directors and distributors involved in farm to school programs. Farmers, K-12 and college food service directors, food distributors, food service management companies, school administrators and representatives from agencies and institutions are among those encouraged to attend.
