NY college campuses to get more local farm goods

ALBANY (AP) -- Four State University of New York campuses will be getting more locally grown vegetables under a pilot project called Farm to College.

The project is supported by a $99,000 federal agricultural grant to American Farmland Trust.

The four SUNY campuses are the University of Albany, SUNY New Paltz, SUNY Oswego and SUNY Oneonta.

Acting state Agriculture Commissioner James Bays says the grant will help American Farmland Trust expand markets for New York farmers while getting more nutritious local products into the state's colleges.

The Initiative involves a statewide partnership of agricultural, public health and economic development interests who will work with campus foodservice providers to increase their purchases of locally grown produce.
