The menu included chili with “homegrown” black beans; cupcakes made with aronia berries; corn muffins and cherry tomatoes; and zucchini from the Wallace Center. Iowa icon Henry A. Wallace, who once lived down the street from Greenwood, started the school lunch program when he was Secretary of Agriculture. Click the headline to read and see more.
