Mt. Pulaski is making its case as the epitome of a farm-to-table lifestyle with a recent decision by the Mt. Pulaski Board of Education.
Superintendent Fred Lamkey on the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday told Regional Radio News the district is bringing in a new food provider whose aim is to bring the farm-to-table concept to schools.
Lamkey indicates the company they are hiring is well established across the corn belt. He explains they have excellent systems in place to train school staff, provide food, and give kids plenty of options.
The program starts next year for Mt. Pulaski schools. This effort also coincides with a coop grocery store in the community focused on providing local farmer-produced food to the community.
ALMH in Lincoln also began a similar effort late in 2019 with schools in Lincoln.
