The Kentucky Dept. of Agriculture’s Farm to School Program stimulates interest in local agriculture, creates a nontraditional market for Kentucky producers, increases quality of products available to school cafeterias, and ultimately increases Kentucky student fruit and vegetable consumption. An additional program, called the Kentucky Farm to School Junior Chef competition, is a statewide high school cooking competition designed to offer youth the opportunity to learn valuable skills in recipe development, food preparation, marketing, public presentation, organization, teamwork and community involvement.
