ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Efforts to provide more healthy, locally sourced school meals to New York school children are getting some help from the state.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration this month announced more than $300,000 in new funding for six “Farm to School” programs around the state. The money will help school districts provide more locally produced food products to children.

The Democratic governor says the initiative is intended to provide children with high-quality, healthy food while also promoting local agriculture.

The money will go to local agricultural extension services and to school districts. The district in Buffalo is the largest district set to receive funding.
