Food Corps is working with public schools and other groups in Connecticut to provide more locally grown foods for school cafeterias. The program focuses not only on providing healthy food but also teaching students about nutrition and providing resources for teachers. "We're not just giving the kids better food -- we're educating them about food," said Ernie Koschmieder, director of food services for Windham Public Schools in Willimantic, Conn.
