To help celebrate Farm to School Month Midwest Dairy Council has developed materials to help schools promote milk as Fast. Fresh. From a Farm Family Near You. A packet of materials which included a school cafeteria poster – featuring a ND Dairy Farm Family, classroom ideas guide and success stories was sent to all School Cafeteria Managers in all the schools in North Dakota in August. The School Cafeteria Managers also have an opportunity to enter the ‘what’s your story” contest to win an industrial sized blender.
I would be grateful if you could find opportunities to encourage North Dakota schools to use the materials sent to them or to visit our website for additional resources (Video, Menu Template and Dairy Facts Sheet) to help promote dairy and dairy farming in October. Please also encourage them to enter the contest.
The materials and contest information are located on our website: http://www.midwestdairy.com/0t328p381/from-a-farm-family-near-you/
