Fresh Food For Schools On The Discussion Table
State Senator Kathy Stein says Kentucky schools would have much better access to fresh fruit and vegetables if there was a strong network of food processing factories scattered across the Commonwealth.
The Lexington Democrat made the comment Wednesday (October 9) during a meeting of the Kentucky General Assembly’s Interim Joint Committee on Agriculture.
“I wish that we could figure out some way to get some canneries in Kentucky. You know, our schools need fresh vegetables.” –Kathy Stein
Stein says the schools could provide healthier lunches if they were able to offer green beans in December that had been canned in July or August.
