What is Farm to School?

Farm to school connects children to local agriculture through:

Procurement: Using locally grown foods in meals, snacks and Child Nutrition Programs like the National School Lunch Program. Our network uses the commonwealth of Pennsylvania as our definition of local.

School Gardens: Helping educators and students grow their own food.

Hands-On Learning: Providing experiential education through farm field trips, cooking in the classroom and more.
