Secretary Ross joins First Partner in roundtable discussion about small farms providing nutrition to local schools

California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom (black hat and tan jacket) listens to CDFA Secretary Karen Ross (denim jacket) during a roundtable discussion at Fiery Ginger Farm, a 2-acre urban farm in West Sacramento. This roundtable is one of many conversations the California Farm to School Working Group is conducting to learn more about how community members implement farm to school at the neighborhood level to promote child nutrition. These sessions are informal conversations where challenges, obstacles and opportunities for future collaboration emerge. Attending the pictured roundtable discussion are nutrition services directors and others from area school districts, as well as area small farms looking for ways to better collaborate with school districts.
