WFISD Food Service Members Encourage Use Of Local Produce

It’s Farm to School Month and WFISD was at the Downtown Farmers Market on Saturday, Oct. 5 to celebrate by highlighting the use of fresh fruits and vegetables within the schools.

Emily Kincaid, Chartwells K12 Marketing Specialist and Food Service for WFISD, said “There’s three things we’re trying to accomplish with this. The first is that we’re wanting to get kids in touch with where their food is coming from and why it’s beneficial to source foods from places that are closer to home. Also, there’s a nutrition factor. When we feed WFISD students, we’re quite literally feeding the future so it’s really important that we have the best nutritious food possible.”
