Parishville-Hopkinton to host ‘farm-to-school’ community forum

Peter Martin cradles a handful of strawberries at Martin’s Farmstand, Potsdam, in 2017. The Parishville-Hopkinton Central School District received pears from Martin’s last month and is hoping to work with more growers in St. Lawrence County to establish a farm-to-table model for school meals.

PARISHVILLE — As part of its effort to move its food service program forward, the Parishville-Hopkinton Central School District is hosting a “farm-to-school” community forum at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the school auditorium.

The district is looking to move to a more sustainable farm-to-table model that involves local farms and food distributors in Parishville, Hopkinton and the rest of St. Lawrence County.
