Albany, Ga., producers in the Farm to School program let elementary students handle fresh vegetables, a first experience for some, as they talked to them about where the food they eat comes from. "We understand that childhood obesity is our fight, we understand that children need to be educated on what to eat, what choices to make and then they make great choices," says Vanessa Hayes, child nutrition services director at the International Studies Elementary Charter School.
