Schools Celebrate Pride of Dakota School Lunch Day

Posted:

Schools in North Dakota are giving students some food for thought...literally.

It's Pride of Dakota School Lunch Day.

This year's theme is "Where Does Your Food Come From?"

More than 35,000 students will enjoy lunches that feature locally grown foods from our state.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring spends his lunch hour with students at St. Anne Catholic School in Bismarck.

He says he wants young people to understand where their food comes from and learn how to make good food choices.

"I like visiting with the kids. They ask a lot of questions. Very rarely they're actually talking about the food that's on their plate, but they are talking about agriculture. They're talking about farming. They want to know a little something about where their food comes from. They want to know some about some of the crops that are produced in the state. Maybe some of the crops that we produce on my farm," says Doug Goehring, ND Agriculture Commissioner.

Seventy two school districts with 143 schools are participating in Pride of Dakota School Lunch Day.

Goehring says he has lunch with students at a different school every year.
