Farm to School

The goal of Farm to School is to get more locally grown product into the school cafeterias.  Farm to school programs can be as big as serving up locally grown fruit, vegetable or other item once a day or as little as once a school year.  Large or small, each program is important and supports the health and well being of students and farmers.

Research carried out by the National Farm to School Network shows that Farm to School programs can result in:
