The U.S. Department of Agriculture is now taking applications for its "Farm to School" grants.

The $5-million program helps connect schools with their local farmers, ranchers and food businesses. At the same time, it gives schools the opportunity to offer healthy and local products in their cafeteria.

Schools have until April 24th to apply.
