A Fresh Approach to Feeding Students

Outdoors might be sporting the usual winter grays and browns, but inside the greenhouses at Rayville High School, is a lush, brilliant green. Earlier this year, Richland Parish Food Network Services was given a grant through Seed Change, an initiative of the National Farm to School Network to expand the use of locally grown produce in schools through changes in procurement, education or the addition of school gardens. The Seed Change Program in Louisiana is funded by a donation by the Walmart Foundation.

Beverly Gresham, field manager for Richland Parish Food Network Services, said the office received a $26,000 hub grant and the schools each received $5,000 seed grants. The schools used the grants to update four greenhouses on the Rayville High School campus and one on the Delhi High School campus (with assistance from the Delhi Hospital).

Rory Gresham, the greenhouse manager, runs three greenhouses at Rayville High. The first is for germination. Seeds stay there for the first three weeks before being moved to either the tomato greenhouse or the lettuce greenhouse. Right now, Rory Gresham does all the work. He said the program was started too late in the year to adjust students' curriculum, but they hope to have student involvement in the program starting in the 2016-17 school year.
