TEXAS AGRICULTURE COMMISSIONER SID MILLER CONGRATULATES Valley View Independent School District.

 

Valley View — Today, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller announced the nutrition team at Valley View ISD has successfully completed the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) 2021 Fall Farm Fresh Challenge. Throughout October, the children at Valley View ISD ate local foods, learned about Texas agriculture, and the staff shared their success on social media. The challenge is part of Commissioner Miller’s Farm Fresh Initiative that is building a Farm Fresh generation by connecting farmers and ranchers with school nutrition programs.

 

“The Farm Fresh Challenge plays a critical role in connecting Texas farmers and ranchers directly with school children and local communities,” Commissioner Miller said. “Texas agriculture has a real impact on students and their daily lives. I want to challenge our kids to make healthy lifestyle choices for every meal they eat by filling their plates with locally sourced produce from right here in the Lone Star State.”

 

Valley View ISD demonstrated their commitment to ensuring Texas children are homegrown and healthy by taking the Farm Fresh Challenge. They joined 186 other school districts and charter organizations for the annual event. In addition to serving healthy and balanced meals every day, these schools make offering agricultural education and serving Texas foods top priorities during the challenge. Their efforts help strengthen local economies while recognizing the efforts of farmers and ranchers in the Lone Star State.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
