- on October 23, 2012
Kansas Secretary of Agriculture Dale Rodman will celebrate Farm to School Week with a visit to Eudora Wednesday.
Rodman was scheduled to join Eudora school board members and Douglas County officials on a tour of the Eudora school district’s garden and culinary center. The group will also hear presentations from the district’s food service representative and superintendent about Farm to School initiatives there, said Mary Geiger, communications director for the state department of agriculture.
Rodman and other officials also were scheduled to enjoy a 45-percent local lunch with students.
Wednesday is Kansas Food Day, which the state describes as an effort to promote well-balanced, nutrient-rich eating habits; support all Kansas farmers and ranchers; continuously improve agricultural production; and reduce hunger in Kansas communities.
