October is Farm to School Month
2021 Art and Recipe Contest

What is Farm to School Month?

Farm to School Month celebrates the connection between children, local food and farms. Through Farm to School programs, students gain access to healthy, local foods as well as education opportunities such as school gardens, cooking lessons and farm field trips. Farm to school empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.
