Louisiana Farm to School Plants Seeds to Success

By Crystal Besse, LSU AgCenter

Strawberries, sweet potatoes and satsumas are just a few of the Louisiana locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables that schools and preschools across Louisiana feature in classrooms and cafeterias as part of the Louisiana Farm to School Program. Students learn about these local favorites with the help of Louisiana Harvest of the Month, a collection of lessons, posters and other resources about local food from the Farm to School program.
