During lunchtime, kids at area schools may soon be eating food grown on nearby farms.

That's because school officials have met with Arlene Jones, owner of foods distribution company Sprout, LLC. Jones, who also owns her own farm, "The Farm on St. Mathias," visited Wadena on Feb. 22 to meet with both the food service supervisor and school nurse from Sebeka Schools, as well as the dean of M State, to discuss the possibility of bringing food from local farms to serve on campus.
