More Montana-grown food ending up on University of Montana plates

Since 2003, the University of Montana's dining services have bought six and a half million dollars worth of food - everything from lentils to beef - from Montana farmers and ranchers, under the Farm to College program. The program was created out of a partnership between students in the Environmental Studies program and UM's Dining Services, and has grown every year.
    News Director Sally Mauk visited one of the Dining Services kitchens - and a new on-campus garden - to learn more about the program, and UM's increasing commitment to buying,  and growing, local.

Sally Mauk talks with UM Dining Services officials Michele Loftus and Rebecca Wade, and UM garden manager Natasha Hegmann, about the Farm to College program
