Cornwall students celebrate Farm to School grant

MONTPELIER — Seven students from Bingham Memorial School in Cornwall gathered with students and teachers from about 20 Vermont schools at the Statehouse cafeteria in Montpelier earlier this year along with legislators, government officials and Vermont Farm to School Network leaders to celebrate Farm to School Awareness Day and honor 2017 grant winners.
The Cornwall students — Sarah Tölgyesi, Molly Thalen, Lucy Goetz, Erin Sears, Miley Hansen, Ben Longman and Linc Bonner — accepted an Implementation Grant on behalf of Bingham Memorial.
Over $121,000 in grants and technical supports were awarded to 13 schools, representing 10 Vermont counties, for the purpose of growing and developing farm to school programs. Cornwall was the only Addison County school to win a grant. This year’s Farm to School grants will expand the reach of the Vermont Farm to School Program by 5,000 students, raising the total number of Vermont students with increased access to fresh, healthy, locally grown foods and nutrition education through the grant program to 40,000.
