I was honored to get a shout out from Sen. Leahy at the recent Milton Summer Food Kickoff Carnival before 500 regional elementary school students and their parents. Sen. Leahy is a national leader on Farm to School and he kindly acknowledged my legislative work this session on Vermont’s Farm to School efforts, including appropriating $75K in new dollars to expand Universal Meals (no cost sharing or admin hassles) to hopefully dozens of new schools in Vermont.
Also kudos to Hunger Free Vermont who supported the Milton event. As of this month, I am very proud to be a newly minted board member of HFV.
