Ohio Profile

Ohio State University Extension’s Farm to School program provides resources to help schools procure and serve locally produced food and help students understand where their food comes from and how their food choices affect their health, environment and community. As part of the Ohio State University Extension Local Food Signature program, farm to school combines components from OSUE program areas: nutrition, youth development, production and distribution, and local food systems. Ohio Farm to School Program reaches key audiences through essential partnerships with the Ohio Dept. of Agriculture, Dept. of Education and Dept. of Health, as well as Farm Bureau, the American Dairy Association, and other agencies, trade groups and philanthropic organizations. In 2014, Ohio Farm to School will present six regional workshops across the state to connect schools with local producers.
