<p>FISH TO SCHOOLS: About three years ago, the Sitka School District (SSD), in Alaska, was one of the first districts in the state to get serious about serving local seafood. In a partnership with the National School Lunch Program and the local fishing community, SSD has been serving local salmon twice a week. The Sitka Conservation Society has developed<a href="http://www.sitkawild.org/a_guide_to_serving_local_fish_in_school_cafeterias" target="_blank"> a resource guide</a> for serving local fish in schools with information on procurement and processing, tips and even lesson plans that help connect salmon to the classroom.</p>
Hook up with a fisherman for sustainable salmon
When foodservice teams build relationships with eco-conscious fishermen, serving sustainable salmon becomes much easier.
