Sponsors needed for DC Farm to School Week in October

The DC Farm to School Network is coordinating the October 11-15 DC Farm to School Week extravaganza.   The network will help get local produce in every DC school cafeteria that week and coordinate farm field trips and chef demonstrations in 40 schools.

Support from the community will make the week all the more community driven and the farm-to-school movement that much more robust.   Organizations and individuals alike are being sought to contribute to the effort in some way—perhaps by providing a bus for a farm field trip, produce for a chef demonstration, or photographers or photo-journalists for participating schools.   More information about sponsorship is available from Andrea Northup.   Contact her by phone at area code 202, 526-5344 x298 or via email.
