Ohio farmers could profit by selling produce to schools.

But to do so, they need to know what products schools buy, their packaging requirements, their budgets and decision makers, according to a news release.

Julie Fox, Ohio State University Extension Farm to School program director, and Mary Griffith, also of Extension, will present a session titled 'Selling farm products to schools," Sept. 18, from 11 a.m.-noon, at the Small Farm Center near London, Ohio.

Presentations will be made by school food service directors, school buyers, farmers who have sold to schools and community leaders.

The farm to school presentation is part of the Farm Service Review.

Tickets are available for $5 each at county Extension offices or $8 at the gate.
