Jackson-Madison School Lunches Get Nod From Bon Appétit

Students at Liberty Tech work in the greenhouse.

Students at Liberty Tech High School in Jackson, Tennessee work in the school’s greenhouse.

October is National Farm to School Month, and the national food magazine Bon Appétit is celebrating by featuring seven school districts across the country that are serving up school lunches worthy of a restaurant. Jackson-Madison schools made the list for their locally produced fruits and vegetables. Find out what is for lunch here, and how students are responding.

Earlier this month Classroom Chronicles also featured the Liberty Tech Greenhouse, the producer of fresh vegetables for fives schools in the Jackson-Madision district. Read more about how students are driving the growth of this program here.
