Natomas Unified School District Nutrition Services teamed up with the Inderkum Culinary Club to prepare a farm-to-fork dinner for school board members yesterday.

The event was meant to showcase local, farm-fresh ingredients and students’ talents. October is National Farm to School Month.

The menu for the Oct. 8 dinner featured food grown in the area as well as culinary techniques students have learned at club meetings. Teacher Elizabeth Henderson is the club’s adviser.

The meal was served to Natomas Unified school board members and staff at Inderkum High School.

National Farm to School Month was designated by Congress in 2010 to demonstrate the growing importance of farm to school programs as a means to improve child nutrition, support local economies and educate children about the origins of food.
