Celebrate Farm To School Month With Us

OCTOBER IS NATIONAL FARM TO SCHOOL MONTH, a time to 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, farms, communities and organizations in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and U.S. Territories take part in the celebrations. 

 

You, too, can celebrate this special month at home.  October is the perfect month to get out and visit local orchards with your family to pick apples and other produce.  There are also many pumpkin farms in the area, as well as an abundance of Farmer’s Markets.  Learning about where our foods comes from helps shape healthy eating habits, and dispel the multitude of food myths that often plague our social media and online outlets.

 

Stay tuned to our social media outlets for events held within our classrooms and cafeterias.
