Zipparo says that there were many schools that filled participated in the survey but Thaddeus Stevens came out on top.

Governor Scott is also very proud of the Farm to School initiative. He says his favorite part of it all is, Just the kids, and understanding that relationship to how food is produced and grown. Because many kids don't understand that. They think they go to the grocery store and thats about it, that's as far as they go and there's a lot to it. And again, it teaches them so much."
