A pair of amendments to the Senate Farm Bill written by U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon have been approved.  One amendment establishes multiple" farm to school" demonstration projects across the U.S.  It will allow schools and local school food authorities to serve healthy local produce to kids every day.  The second amendment helps gleaners; those who voluntarily collect food that would otherwise be thrown away and donate it to food banks or other institutions for those in need.  It would make USDA backed microloans available to them so they could purchase refrigerators or vehicles to expand their efforts.  Final passage of the entire Senate Farm Bill is expected later this week.
