FoodCorps service member Erin Jackson in Bozeman, MT was recently asked to
speak on Montana Public Radio for the Alternative Energy Resources
Organization (AERO) to share her experience as a school garden educator and
her ability to connect kids to real food through hands-on gardening
activities. AERO is a grassroots membership organization serving as
Montana’s hub for sustainable communities: inspiring change, connecting
local leaders, and building capacity for success across the state for 40
years. If you'd like to get involved, check them out at www.aeromt.org.

Erin's talk, which aired on MTPR on June 19, 2014, is called "Schools Can
Build Real Relationships with Real Food" and the transcript is here:

FoodCorps service member Nicki Jimenez serving with Mission Mountain Food
Enterprise Center in Ronan, MT recently developed a Local Snack Fact
Library to share!

This is a library of fact sheets that food service departments in western
Montana send to classrooms with locally-sourced Fresh Fruit and Vegetable
Program snacks. Each fact sheet features kid-friendly information about the
food and the farm that grew it. Teachers use the fact sheets to connect
kids with their food and who grew it before tasting a fresh, local snack
together. Each fact sheet is available in pdf and word document form. The
PDFs show the original formatting and the word documents are fully editable
(except for the FoodCorps Montana and LCCDC logos) so you can personalize
them for your school and local farms.

Check out the Snack Fact Library here and please share widely with school
food service staff and educators you know:
