Texas Department of Agriculture Recognizes District for Success in Local Products Challenge

“Teaching children about healthy lifestyles and the importance of agriculture by introducing them to nutritious, Texas-grown foods is a top priority at TDA,” Commissioner Miller said. “When our school nutrition partners accepted our Local Products Challenge, they strengthened Texas agriculture and demonstrated their commitment to developing good nutritional habits for the young Texans they serve and their local communities.”

Participation in TDA’s Local Products Challenge continues to grow year-after-year. More than 140 school districts participated in the 2016 Local Products Challenge. Seventy-seven districts earned a Best of the Bunch Award representing their commitment to serving three or more local products in the school meal served to students.

“Our child nutrition team works tirelessly throughout the year to prepare healthy and appealing school meals, ensuring our students are ready to learn and achieve their academic goals,” said Magnolia ISD Superintendent Dr. Todd Stephens. “The Best of the Bunch Award highlights their efforts to serve local products in the cafeteria and make our district a leader in nutrition for the Lone Star State.”
