Oregon’s school lunches are wholly paid for by federal dollars. At least they were until 2011, when Oregon passed legislation creating the Farm to School Grant, establishing a State fund for schools to purchase fresh, locally-produced food. That law is now up for renewal and expansion. For 12 years, Whitney Ellersick, the Senior Director of Nutrition Services at Portland Public Schools, has been working to keep students fed and ready to learn every day. Lola Milholland is the CEO of Umi Organic, which has developed a new yakisoba noodle specifically to meet USDA requirements to be included in school lunches.
