LEWISBURG - A collaborative that aims at putting homegrown West Virginia products in school cafeterias is spreading the word.
A farm-to-school showcase was held Friday at The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs. Officials wanted to encourage more farmers to sell to West Virginia school systems, which spend about $100 million a year on food. The collaborative also works with student farmers.
Officials said the program has three tenets: grow, educate and sell.
