National Farm to School Month
October is National Farm to School Month and the Beef Checkoff is partnering with the initiative to celebrate “Explore Beef” theme day on October 30.
The Farm to School Network connects school-age children (5-18) with local farms to talk about healthy cafeteria meals, agriculture education opportunities and support for local/regional farmers.
Kansas rancher Debbie Lyons-Blythe was quoted in a recent press release, “It’s a great way to answer specific questions about how cattle are raised, explain how cattlemen and women care for the environment, and connect those who are interested in learning more about the families who raise beef.”
For more information please contact the Farm to School Network Kansas liaison, Barb Depew,
So here cattle lovers, here’s your chance to give back to your local community.
