Dexter Farm to School Goes to the Capital!

In October, the Dexter Farm to School program was represented alongside Dexter Food and Nutrition’s team at Lunch on the Lawn in Lansing, and event attended by many state representatives and their staff to learn more about issues facing school nutrition across the state.  We were honored to be featured and found the event informative and invigorating (partially because it was so CHILLY!)

Here are some photos from the event.

Dexter Food and Nutrition provided a school lunch for legislators, their staff, and food service directors across the state.

Our friend, Dan Vernia, came with us to represent the Washtenaw Food Hub, a local effort to create a business that would help meet institutional demand for local products from small and mid-sized farms.
