    A nationwide study shows North Carolina's public schools are using more local food in their cafeterias than other states.

    More than 60 percent of the state's 115 districts participate in farm-to-school activities meaning they buy from local farmers or use food they've planted in gardens.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture said North Carolina is second only to California.
