Marin schools end red meat ban, accept local grass-fed beef
April 29, 2019
Villarreal, who took
red meat off the Novato schools’ menus completely in 2008 after a major California
beef recall, has this year forged an arrangement to receive grass-fed,
hormone-free beef from district parents Loren and Lisa Poncia, owners of
Stemple Creek Ranch in Tomales. The couple have two children at Loma Verde
Elementary School in Novato.
