A bit about Chicopee Public Schools
Our schools have always had a reputation for excellence when it comes to serving fresh, nutritious, delicious food. Thanks to a Kendall Foundation grant, we scaled up our Farm to School program. In fall 2014 we launched a new initiative, ChicopeeFRESH, leading to many new partnerships with local producers. Local ingredients are now served in school meals almost every day, and our use of local continues to grow!
