Virginia recently celebrated farm-to-school week, highlighting the connection between farmers around the state and what’s on the tray in the lunch line.
But for one private school in Richmond, farm-to-table is more than just one week out of the year.
St. Andrews Elementary School in Richmond had some unusual visitors for lunch earlier this month -- chickens.
The two Rhode Island Reds were part of a lesson on healthy eating. Kindergarteners through fifth graders got to learn what the chickens eat, and how their diet affects the eggs they produce.
