State officials will tour Lawrence on Tuesday as part of a Farm to School Celebration that focuses on connecting local farms with healthy meals in school cafeterias.

Kansas Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman and Kansas Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker will have lunch with students at West Middle School, 2700 Harvard Road. The meal will be prepared using more than 50 percent locally grown or processed products.

Afterward, they will visit the school garden and hear presentations from students.

Then officials will tour the Moon on the Meadow Farm, 1515 E. 11th St. The final stop is Hilltop Child Development Center, 1605 Irving Hill Rd., where First Lady Mary Brownback will read to pre-school children.
