Fresh Local Produce, Healthy Eating

Farm to school empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities. Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education sites.

When schools implement Farm to School within their nutrition services, students gain access to healthy, local foods as well as interactive educational opportunities to learn about vegetable gardening, healthy cooking, and farming.
