Farm to School serve SC Legislatures

Wednesday, May 16, the Department of Agriculture hosted a 'Taste of SC' on State House grounds for the State House and Senate.  The Farm to School program hosted a booth and served Strawberry Salsa with Certified SC Strawberries. Two lucky boys from Farm to School recipient schools helped pass out this delicious treat! The event was a great success and great exposure for the SC Farm to School program! Make sure to try out our Strawberry Salsa recipe while strawberries are still in season!
