Here are some other cool links:
(U.S.D.A.)'s Chefs Move to Schools Program:
"The Chefs Move to Schools program, run through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will help chefs partner with interested schools in their communities so together they can create healthy meals that meet the schools’ dietary guidelines and budgets, while teaching young people about nutrition and making balanced and healthy choice." --U.S.D.A. website 

What's in Season in Summer food awareness by the U.S.D.A.

All this information and more available from the National Agricultural Library.

It houses one of the world's largest and most accessible agricultural information collections and serves as the nexus for a national network of state land-grant and U.S. Department of Agriculture field libraries." --National Agricultural Library website
