School gardens are now being embraced nationwide, as is farm-to-school. But school garden-to-cafeteria? It's what's coming next--well-established in some districts, in fact, which offer valuable resources to beginners. Concerned about food safety? Funding? Whether or not to buy student-grown or accept it as a donation? Is it worth the trouble--does it interest children in eating more produce, trying new fruits and veggies? The nation's two leading experts, from Colorado and Oregon, discuss all this and more. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"Everyone along the supply chain of school food should get their fair equal prices. There are costs to school gardens. Right now districts don't pay for much of those costs." [18:00]

---Andy Nowak on Inside School Food

"What we develop in Denver needs to be a template - the beginning of a conversation in your own county." [25:00]

"If you put in the effort and there are educational opportunities in place - you see wholeheartedly that kids will make nutritional choices." [28:00]

In Jefferson County, Colorado, a better school lunch often starts with better chicken: locally and sustainably grown, without antibiotics, and prepared from scratch. In the world of K-12 food service, this is widely regarded as an Olympian swan dive off a 33-foot-high board--beautiful to behold, but not something you can or should try at home. Today's guests on Inside School Food explain how they do it (turns out it's not that hard, if you've got ovens and the right supplier), and how their effort impacts student health. This program was sponsored by Tabard Inn.

"It's easy for us to sell whole birds, it's easy for us to sell chicken breast - but when we're parting the birds out, we often end up with dark meat as a byproduct. We usually just end up selling that as a commodity product into the marketplace and we're not able to get a premium price for it even though it's a premium product. We're able to sell it into the school districts and supply them with a premium product because of how we raise those birds. That allows them to sell a meal at a very price conscious point - then we know those kids are able to eat a quality meat, schools are able to meet their budget and we even end up with some marketing out of that." [24:00]
