Two Actions for National Farm to School Month

Two Actions for National Farm to School Month

FarmRaiser salutes Farm to School month with two easy things you can do to help connect schools and kids with healthy, local food.

  1.  Please take a minute and visit the National Farm to School site below, and mark your calendars for the Big Day of Action on Oct 22, when Congress will consider reauthorization of the  Child Nutrition Act.
  2. We also suggest that you take matters into your own hands, and start a FarmRaiser today and start building relationships between your local producers and your school, giving kids an opportunity to become advocates for healthy eating.

October is National Farm to School Month! Join us as we celebrate the connections happening all over the country between children and local food. From taste tests in the cafeteria and nutrition education activities in the classroom, to farm visits and school garden harvest parties, schools, preschools, communities and organizations in all 50 states and D.C. will be celebrating this October.
