Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Schools in Fargo and across the state took home cooking to a new level today.

140 different schools in North Dakota took a bite out of home grown food at lunchtime as part of the Pride of Dakota program.

The local foods included Cloverdale hot dogs and whole wheat and gluten free cookies from Fargo and West Fargo bakeries.

It aims to foster development and growth of small businesses, especially those connected to agriculture.

Students were excited because not only was the food locally grown, but it was also kid friendly.

Kasen Sanders, Longfellow Elementary student: "We usually never get a cookie, but I looked, and I saw a lot of people and their faces were kind of happy about it."

More than 500 companies are Pride of North Dakota members.
