Founding members of Winters Farm to School, Melanie Bajakian, Cathy Olsen and Patty Rominger, received the 2015 Yolo County Excellence in Education Award on Monday, March 16th at the Yolo County Office of Education in Woodland. Winters School District Superintendent, Brent Cushenberry, nominated Winters Farm to School to receive the award.
Olsen, Bajakian and Rominger received a plaque from the Yolo County School Boards Association along with recognitions from Congressman John Garamendi, Senator Lois Wolk and Assemblymember Bill Dodd.
Winters Farm to School was recognized, in part, for their success in raising $50,000 to purchase healthier, local foods for our school meal programs. Those funds were raised at their annual Bastille Day Feast, which will take place this year on July 11th at the historic Wolfskill Ranch in Winters. Tickets to this year’s feast can be purchased in advance by calling 530-795-6109.
