School gardens get funding stateside

Recently passed legislation called the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, S.3307: includes the following:

Connecting More Children to Healthy Local Produce through Farm-to-School Programs

The bill provides $40 million in mandatory funding to help schools establish school gardens and source local foods into their cafeterias. This is great news, and we look forward to the Canadian equivalent.
