With the success of school gardens programs across the state, educators, farmers, and legislators want to build on these achievements with House Bill 2721
Help Oregon build on the success of Farm to School and school gardens programs by supporting House Bill 2721. The bill will give all districts a fair share of the food funds, based on school lunches served, allow districts to use the funds for local foods for any school meal programs, not just lunch, and expand total funding to $5.6M to benefit all districts, and to let farmers and processor count on consistent buyers.
