Farm to school tour connects Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry with local farmers

California Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (top photo, third from right) speaks with local farm to school leaders during a May 6 tour of Fiery Ginger Farm in West Sacramento. The roundtable portion of the tour was a chance to discuss the work of CDFA’s Farm to School Program, as well as hear from local farm to school practitioners about program implementation, successes and challenges.

“As the former Mayor of Winters who supported and promoted our own Winters Farm to School program, I am proud that our small town was a leader in getting local, healthy foods to our school children and their families. To see our Department of Food and Agriculture implement a program that will help countless other cities and towns do the same is very exciting to me,” said Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters). “Supporting local food leads to healthier communities, makes struggling family farms more prosperous, and even helps fight climate change by reducing processing and shipping. This is a truly valuable initiative.”
