Getting with the school lunch improvement trend

Here's the latest about Sonoma Valley Unified School District

It's good to know we are with the trends - having a chef committed to fresh and local working on improving school lunch. But the fact remain that that produce truck comes from Salinas. Regional, perhaps, but not really local.  And the writer seems to skirt around how much success the chef has had getting produce from the school gardens - which are at every school in SVUSD - into the kitchens.  I wonder if more parents who can afford the full price would have their kids eat from the school cafeteria, if the quality of the meals could improve even more.
