Editor’s note: Hartford Public Schools in Hartford, Connecticut was awarded a 2017 USDA Farm to School grant to incorporate higher volumes of local food into the school menu. The grant will allow the district to install new processing equipment to establish an enhanced "central production kitchen" in Hartford's Journalism & Media Academy. This kitchen will process, package, and distribute local foods to a network of eighteen schools while increasing the flavor and variety of school meals. Hartford schools will also expand the district's partnership with FoodCorps to increase nutrition promotion and food education in both the classroom and cafeteria. We wanted to learn more about this important project and the crucial support of farmers, FoodCorps, community partners, and the USDA that made it possible.
