    Great story on Wisconsin Public Radio about how Wisconsin farmers are working to provide locally grown produce to school districts for student meals as districts face supply chain issues caused by the pandemic, including the role AmeriCorps members with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Farm to School program are playing in this process through the AmeriCorps Wisconsin Local Foods Database. Kara Ignasiak, the program director for the AmeriCorps Farm to School program describes how the database launched last year is helping to make connections between Wisconsin farmers and school food service directors to help make this possible. https://www.wpr.org/schools-struggle-food-supply-chains-wisconsin-farmers-help-fill-gaps #WIAmeriCorps #ServiceinWI #FarmtoSchool #F2S America's Service Commissions
