Farm to school programs link local farmers with schools.
This simple concept holds great potential as a solution to two of the major challenges facing our society: concerns about the diet and health of children and the dwindling of small farms. By purchasing locally grown products, schools are able to serve fresher produce to students, create new markets for local farms, and incorporate exciting programs that meet state education standards. Farms gain a sense of community involvement by impacting the lives of children and becoming involved in agricultural education, while benefiting from increased sales.
