Sourcing local food can be a lot of work for school cafeteria directors, and they already have a tough job. A new statewide program aims to make the process easier: it's called Harvest of the Month, and it's run by the Massachusetts Farm to School Project. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth Hay talks with Wellfleet Elementary Cafeteria Manager Tonya Felix about how the program has helped her put local food on the menu.
