Vermont 5th-graders to help plant White House garden
WCAX-TV reports that the students will be at the White House on Thursday.
School district officials said last week the invitation was prompted by the district's changes to its food service. Mrs. Obama had noted a blog post from Milton Food Service Director Steve Marinelli about the fresh entrees now available to Milton students, along with fruits and vegetables in their new "self-serve" bars.
Mrs. Obama also liked the students' essays about how changes in the school food service helped the school and community.
