Mayor’s Neighborhood Expo Features Farm2School & Local Partnerships

On Saturday, the La Crosse community converged in the La Crosse Center for the 4th Annual La Crosse Mayor’s Neighborhood Expo. This year’s expo was titled, “Living Well in the City: Together We Can.” The neighborhood expo gave community members the chance to learn more about the work community members are doing to promote healthy lifestyles.

One of the breakout sessions focused on the Coulee Region Farm2School Program.  Representatives from La Crosse County, La Crosse School District, Grow La Crosse, Mayo Clinic Health System – Franciscan Healthcare, and Gundersen Health System focused on their collaborative effort to provide locally-grown, fresh foods to students in area schools and also in the greater community!
