Farm to School: Eating to Learn, Learning to Eat

In Minnesota and across the country, schools are embracing farm to school.

By improving the offerings of fresh fruits and vegetables, Farm to School programs will help make the healthy choice the easy choice for students and school staff. Kids eat more fresh local foods and learn about where their food comes from, all while supporting local farmers. By connecting farms and schools, children, schools and farmers all benefit.

How many schools nationally and in Minnesota now connect with farms?


Has your school considered a Farm to School program?
