Kelley Dodgson, district spokeswoman, said each month a different fresh fruit or vegetable grown in Georgia will be highlighted in school cafeterias.

In October, apples from Mercier Orchards in Blue Ridge, Ga., will be the spotlight produce.

“The farm-to-school focus will not only highlight the produce, but the farm of origin,” Dodgson said.
