WENATCHEE — A seminar on how area school districts use fresh, local foods in their daily menus will be held this week at Wenatchee Valley College.
The free farm-to-school seminar, part of WVC’s “Food, Environment and Community” series, will start at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Batjer Hall on the college campus.
Geography instructor Joan Qazi will explain how the regional farming system and food distribution works, and how Wenatchee Valley school systems connect with regional farms to improve community health.
Last year, the Wenatchee School District bought more than $85,000 work of produce from nine regional farms, a WVC press release said.
The Food, Environment and Community series spotlights food-related topics and local people involved in food production. The is the second year that the WVC Agriculture and Natural Resources Department has offered the workshops.
