Small farms make a big difference. My grandparents were farmers. They grew tomatoes, corn, potatoes, bell pepper, okra, green beans, strawberries, rapberries, blackberries, apples, and herbs. Organically. They sold (my grandmother still does on a much smaller scale) locally. Mostly individuals, but some local restaurants as well. There are people all over central Illinois who know of them and the quality of their produce. They defintely had an impact on local comerce.

I have to agree with your opinion on the schools. They teach nutrition and then serve lunches with little to no nutrional value. To save money? If the food is thrown out by the kids because it's too gross to eat are you saving anything?
