Kansas Food Day takes place this week, and state Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman will spend part of it touring the garden, orchard and culinary arts facility at a high school.
The state Agriculture Department is partnering with the Eudora School District for the celebration Wednesday at Eudora High School. Officials from Douglas County and the state Department of Education will also take part.
Students in Eudora's agricultural education program will lead the tours.
October is also National Farm To School Month, and the visiting officials will join Eudora students for a lunch made partly from local food products.
Eudora is located just south of Lawrence in Douglas County.
