October is Farm-to-School Month, and there has been a significant boost added to the Farm-to-School program.

In place of the fifth round of funding for the program, one and a half million dollars will be officially available to the school districts involved.

Erin Summerlee, director of the Food and Health Network, says the program is allowing them to not only enhance local produce and farms but to educate schools on agriculture.
