HB 603 – Small Farms to Healthier Schools Initiative

Primary Sponsor: Rep. Terry Garrison (D – Granville)

This bill would appropriate $340,000 in nonrecurring funds for the 2017-2108 fiscal year and $330,000 in nonrecurring funds for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. The funds would be appropriated from the General Fund to Working Landscapes, a nonprofit organization based in Warren County for a pilot program to reimburse participating school districts based on the servings of food they source from farms within the same region.

Of the funds appropriated by this act, $60,000 in fiscal year 2017-2018 and $120,000 in fiscal year 2018-2019 shall be used for payments in participating school systems to offset the higher cost of locally grown products.
