WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) - A collaborative that aims to put homegrown West Virginia products in school cafeterias is spreading the word.

A farm-to-school showcase is scheduled for Friday at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs. The event is part of the kickoff for the 9th edition of the Cast Iron Cook-Off at the resort.
