Ag Commissioner Comer, MSU and ARAMARK officials to unveil Kentucky Proud Farm to Campus program
Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer will officially launch the Kentucky Proud Farm to Campus Program at Morehead State University with MSU President Wayne D. Andrews during a ceremony Thursday, Sept. 26, at 1 p.m. at the Derrickson Agricultural Complex.
Under the Farm to Campus program, the KDA will partner with MSU, ARAMARK, and other Kentucky colleges and universities to help with their buy-local efforts. Over the next two years, the department will target college campuses to put more shelf-stable Kentucky Proud products in their bookstores and gift shops, and more farm-fresh Kentucky Proud products in their cafeterias and food service systems. The KDA will also work with the universities and student sustainability groups on Kentucky Proud/buy local efforts in college towns.
The University Farm is located on KY 377 (Cranston Road).
