It’s Back to (Farm to) School Time!

Kids are heading back to school for another year of learning. A growing number of schools participating in “farm to school” programs are also preparing for an exciting year of gardening, taste tests, cooking demonstrations, farm tours and healthy school meals featuring local foods.

Why? Because we know it works! Kids are eating more fruits and vegetables, developing a palate for healthy food, farmers are benefiting from diversified income sources, and dollars are recirculating in local economies.

Get involved with farm to school in your community. Join in the National Farm to School Month celebrations this October around the country.
