North Dakota Highlights
"From Farm to Food To You – the Journey of Milk" was the focus of Midwest Dairy’s booth at the Living Ag Classroom in Minot and Bismarck this past month. More than 2,000 fourth grade students attended the events to learn more about where their food comes from, and the pride and dedication of farmers and ranchers who make it happen.
Valley City Jr./Sr. High School won the grand prize in North Dakota for the Super Bowl Breakfast Challenge of Fuel Up to Play 60! By submitting an idea on how to promote oatmeal and, of course dairy, for breakfast, they won a Fuel Up to Play 60 cafeteria table and booth for their school.
Midwest Dairy has awarded more than $15,000 in Fuel Up to Play 60 funding to five North Dakota schools to help them develop and implement projects to encourage healthy eating and physical activity.
