This week is Virginia Farm to School Week. Virginia farm to school programs connect students with locally grown food in cafeterias, preschools and summer feeding programs while enhancing educational opportunities in school gardens, student farms and land labs, classrooms and cafeterias.

At Greene County Public Schools, we incorporate local produce as much as possible through the Virginia Harvest of the Month program. We're celebrating local produce this week by featuring fresh local apples!
