ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- Donning gloves and an apron, Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Adam Putnam was ready for action Monday.
He helped serve school lunch to students at Mill Creek Elementary in St. Johns County.
He also received a tour of the kitchen at the school.
The Department of Agriculture will take over the school lunch program from the Department of Education in January. Putnam said one goal is to serve more fresh food.
He admitted it might cost more and take more time to prepare.
