Here in Jefferson County, WI we have embarked on a mission to improve the quality of food served in the schools with the help of National Farm to School AmeriCorps members and experts. Through an initiative titled “Eat Here Eat Well”, previously serving as an active coalition, Jefferson County schools, health professionals, farmers, local gardeners, and other community advocates are partnering to make locally grown and healthy foods more accessible in our environments. This organizational change will help Jefferson County achieve its vision to be the healthiest in Wisconsin!
