California's enthusiasm for healthy school lunches appears unlikely to change under a proposed Congressional budget bill that would allow states to weaken new federal school nutrition requirements, including one that schools serve only breads and pastas that are "whole grain rich."
Eight California farm-to-school programs received federal grants on Tuesday with the goal of making broccoli cool on the North Coast, bringing traditional Karuk Tribe foods into Humboldt County schools and supporting local farmers across the state, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced.
At long last, some school food service departments in California are going shopping, under orders from the California Department of Education to spend millions of dollars in federal and state school lunch funds that districts have failed for years to use for student meals.
