We purchase local beef from the ranches in the Drummond valley to use in our tacos, nachos, soups and spaghetti. The kids love the local flavor!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Creating an agreement between the local ranches and the school was challenging, but through working with the local attorney and ranchers, we created an agreement that works.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Using local beef in the lunch entrees has increased the number of students who eat lunch.
