What's the price for fresh produce?

Fresh and organic food has become in higher demand over the past year or so in popular culture [i.e. people I don't really consider foodies, per se, because they don't immerse themselves in food issues, have a strict diet or simply have a love affair with food]. Let me first say that this is a fantastic turn in events. There may be hope yet for obese America. 

Associated Press reported more than 150 Tennessee schools will be receiving fresh fruit and veggies in their lunch rooms, funded from government grants. Grand total of $3.15 million. However, a HUGE step in the right direction. This makes me happy, as I went to kindergarten-high school in Tennessee, and even went to the University of Tennessee. It's good to hear that schools are taking their students health into account. 

here for the full reported story.
