Farm to school works!
After a few years of experience with farm-to-school programs across the country, there is enough data for academic researchers to demonstrate with replicable studies what you already know in your heart: kids eat more healthy food in schools with farm-to-school programs. Read more on the USDA site.
For us, this reinforces our belief that teaching kids about local food and farming with a FarmRaiser campaign will have effects beyond just raising money — there could be lasting changes to eating habits and food choices in the students who participate, particularly when combined with curriculum activities like school gardening, farm visits, or other activities.
