Secretary Ross joins First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom for farm-to-school visit

California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom (seated) is joined by CDFA Secretary Karen Ross during a recent farm to school tour in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District in Contra Costa County. CDFA’s Office of Farm to Fork coordinated the tour to demonstrate the importance of integrated farm to school programs that connect climate-smart, California-produced food in cafeterias to food education in classrooms and gardens, as well as at farms and in local communities. The Office of Farm to Fork is administering a grant program approved by the legislature and signed into law by Governor Newsom to expand these opportunities. The First Partner and Secretary Ross have visited a number of school districts together to learn more about their farm to school programs and plan to continue doing so.
