    On our cover: Zariah enjoys a morning snack of local cantaloupe at the Cary Towne KinderCare childcare center in Cary, North Carolina. This center, along with many other providers from around the country, are enrolling in farm to early care and education programs to help connect low-income families with sources of fresh, local foods. This center committed to feeding children three or more local food items a week through the growing season, exposing children to a variety of new fruits and vegetables while also investing in local farmers and distributors.
