Posted: Updated:
Hamilton County students have been getting a fresh look at some fresh produce during the past few days.

The school district observed "Farm to School Week" by emphasizing local fruits and vegetables, including a big selection from Chattanooga's T & T Produce.

Fresh veggies are routinely served via salads, slaw and veggie sticks, but students have seen a few extras, including cucumbers, green peppers and apples.  

It all comes from Tennessee, including towns like Greenfield and Pikeville.
