#9 :: Montana Farms Go to School

The University of Montana, a member of the national “Farm to College” movement, gets a growing portion of its cafeteria food from local farmers. UM professor Neva Hassanein and a group of graduate students brought the program to the university. Montana State University, Salish Kootenai College, and the Missoula public schools are working with Montana‘s “FoodCorps” to localize their menus. Farmers are even marketing value-added products like ketchup, chips, and apple cider to maintain the “cafeteria” feel… though the french fry is proving tricky, as the potatoes taste “too fresh.” —Catherine Bailey
