ASHLAND, Ore--- On Thursday, Rogue Valley Farm to School and Fry Family Farm handed out around 2,000 boxes of organic vegetables to families in need.

The boxes were handed out to families that are in need of free/reduced lunches in the Ashland School District at Ashland Middle School.

However, Ashland School District is not the only district that benefits from the organizations' work. Central Point School District and Kids Unlimited will be receiving the boxes through the school lunch program as well.

"Being able to see the smiles on people's faces. Then, through Facebook they were sending us pictures of the recipes they made. It was just, the best feeling ever," said Rogue Valley Farm to School executive director Sheila Foster.

The effort is a part of the USDA Farmers to Families Box Program, which is a three billion dollar project.

Foster also mentioned that the kids have been using the lessons they previously learned from Rogue Valley Farm to School about gardening. 

"That is one of the things we have seen is that gardening is on the uptick. So, all those thousands of children that Rogue Valley Farm to School had educated over the years, they are helping to teach their parents how to garden. So, that is exciting."
