Georgia Department Of Agriculture Announces Georgia Grown Test Kitchen Initiative

Eating healthy is the Georgia Department of Agriculture's goal with a new initiative for Georgia schools.

Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black announced an aim at increasing the awareness of proper nutrition by accepting applications for the "The Georgia Grown Test Kitchen."

The program will promote local and healthy eating in schools across the state through supplying nutrition directors with healthy recipes using Georgia grown foods.

Commissioner Black said this program was developed after the "Feed My School For A Week" program was such a success.

"We wanted to build on our "Feed My School" initiative that we talked about and got a lot more demand and had a lot of schools that wanted to participate in trying to search out ways the department could help," said Black. "What they will be able to do, is test recipes that can be utilized in the school system."

Applications will be accepted until May 9, 2014.
