Richfield Dual Language School is harvesting healthy habits

Has your school considered a Farm to School program?

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.

"The positive benefits nutritionally along with the educational benefits of talking about where their food is coming from have been exciting."
—Elizabeth Dohnansky: Director of Food & Nutritional Service, Cloquet Public Schools

"These apples are bomb-diggity"
