The Owensboro Public Schools Summer Feeding program featured its farm to summer lessons Wednesday, June 14 at both Legion and Moreland parks. This is essentially a “show and tell” for farmers where they can connect with the local community at a Summer Feeding site. Farmers talked about how the food is grown, what season and the nutritional benefits of eating locally grown food.
“We invite the farmers to bring fresh produce, marketing, signs, pictures and coupons to the site,” said Kaitlyn Blankendaal, OPS school nutrition supervisor.
“It’s so important for our students and families to know where their food is coming from. It’s the key to eating healthy. We are so fortunate that a lot of our food is grown locally since we are located in an agriculture community,” added Blankendaal.
ANY child age 18 and under can get a free meal from any of the summer feeding sites. Please follow this Link for a complete list of summer feeding locations.
