Students at Decatur Northside Elementary learned where food comes from and the value of good health while developing good eating habits during the Arkansas Farm and You program presented in the school's safe room in Decatur March 8. The Arkansas Farm and You program is a collaboration of several educational organizations which include the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H, Agriculture Education program, and the Arkansas Department of Human Services SNAP-Ed program. The group's primary mission is to educate first- through sixth-grade students in the proper dietary choices and the values of eating the right foods.
