Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Department of Public Health Act and the School Code. Provides that school districts may serve students produce grown and harvested by students in school-owned or community gardens if the produce meets requirements adopted by rule by the Department of Public Health. Requires the requirements to include, but not be limited to, testing soil and water used in the growing of the produce for contaminants. Makes similar changes to the Article concerning the Chicago school district.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:

Provides that school districts may serve students produce grown and harvested by students in school-owned or community gardens if the soil and compost in which the produce is grown meets specified standards and the produce is served in accordance with specified standards (rather than the produce may be served if the produce meets specified standards adopted by the Department of Public Health).
