Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Vermont's Farm-to-School program is getting a big boost with close to half a million dollars in additional funding.

The program aims to get more local food into school cafeterias across the state by linking farmers with institutional buyers and by improving distribution hubs in Vermont for locally-grown food.

With this announcement, $400,000 in grants will be available to Vermont farmers, food producers, public schools and businesses.
