Print Friendly

The Portland Press Herald reported on the Maine FoodCorps program, the state branch of a national program that teaches healthful eating, expands school-based gardens and increases locally grown food in school cafeterias. The University of Maine Cooperative Extension oversees the Maine program that is funded by the Maine Commission for Community Service, with 20 percent of the funding coming from the federal AmeriCorps program. The article states Maine was chosen as one of the original FoodCorps sites because of the state’s interest in and support of the farm-to-school movement.
