The Riverhead Central School District is proud to partner with the East End Food Institute to bring fresh, local food to the plates of our students! Through farm-to-school grants from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets and the United States Department of Agriculture, these collaborations have yielded significant success in increasing the variety and volume of fresh, local farm products in the school meals program. Last week, students in all seven buildings enjoyed fresh strawberries from Latham Farms in Orient, with a total of 136 quarts of strawberries served!
