(INDIANAPOLIS) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded Indiana a $100,000 grant as part of a program to connect school cafeterias with local farmers.

The grant to the Indiana State Department of Health will support a proposed two-year collaboration among the Indiana Farm to School Network, the Hoosier Harvest Market, the Greenfield-Central Community Schools and 38 other school corporations in Hancock and surrounding counties.

The USDA says the project's goal is to help schools find and procure local food and explore the feasibility of what's called a virtual food hub. The goal is to develop farm-to-school programs throughout the state.
