Resident, volunteer promotes local farm-to-school effort
By Keri Luiz
Matthew Wallace has less than fond memories of the school lunches in the days when he was a student at Robert Semple Elementary School.
Now, the 36-year-old father is organizing a community meeting to bring awareness of healthy food choices to Benicia, and to gain support for a farm-to-school program to improve children’s lunches.
“It’s obvious if you talk to anybody, nutrition is very important in education,” he said. “If you don’t have a full stomach, if you haven’t been well fed, how can you concentrate?”
