After a morning of tapping maple trees, students in Seabrook, New Hampshire returned to their school cafeteria for a lunch of mini lobster rolls, maple-glazed scallops and clam chowder - all of the seafood sourced locally. The school was a recipient of a USDA Farm to School grant, which will end this year. But, the program will continue on, thanks to Seabrook voters, who have approved a school operating budget with money for continuing the farm to school initiative. (Newbury Port News)
