Ohio Profile

The Ohio State University Extension (OSU) provides leadership for the statewide farm to school program. This statewide program receives guidance from an Advisory Group representing diverse sectors and interests. On a local level, OSU’s county and regional offices collaborate with local partners to provide farm to school related training and educational programming for parents, students, schools, producers, and supporting agencies. Together we work to provide youth with greater access to fresh, local foods and to agriculture and nutrition education programs that increase students’ understanding of food systems and how food choices affect health, environment, and community.
