(This amendment would fund a school nutrition integration and procurement specialist position for each superintendent's region in order to support local economic activity and increase the quantity of locally-sourced foods served in schools. These positions would serve as a liaison between local farmers and the school system and assist local farmers with necessary certifications. This proposal would help achieve the goal of having school nutrition programs increase local and healthy food purchases by $22 million by 2022.)
