Organic food isn't served in most California school districts...because it costs more. But a bill moving through the legislature would launch a pilot to help schools buy organic food. Capital Public Radio's Julia Mitric has more.
School districts would get 15 cents of additional funding per meal to buy organic produce, dairy and meat from California.
Right now, districts have about $1.25 to spend on each school meal, including labor costs. That's a rough estimate from the Natural Resources Defense Council, the bill's sponsor.
