Founded in 2000, Davis Farm to School supports the Davis Joint Unified School District in their goals to provide farm and garden-based education, increase farm fresh foods in school meals, and reduce solid waste through recycling and composting programs.
The mission of Davis Farm to School is to create an educational and cultural environment in our schools that connects food choices with personal health, community, farms and the land.
Davis Farm to School (DF2S) is a project of the nonprofit organization Davis Farmers Market Alliance. DF2S is run primarily by a dedicated group of longtime volunteers. We thank you for your support and welcome your interest in the organization.
