This week’s featured video was produced by Chartwells School Dining Services to highlight their “Farm to School” program.  This video features the relationship that was established with Cherokee Farms, Marianna, Florida to supply every student in the Duval County School District with fresh satsuma citrus.  This story highlights the success of their program for purchasing fresh produce direct from farmers for immediate distribution in school lunches.  For more information on how farmers can participate in this type of marketing program, go to the Florida Department of Agriculture’s Farm to School webpage.
