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, early care and education sites, farms, communities and organizations in all 50 states and D.C. join in the celebrations.
National Farm to School Month was designated by Congress in 2010 to demonstrate the growing importance of farm to school programs as a means to improve child nutrition, support local economies and educate children about the origins of food. In 2015, we partnered with more than 200 organizations to promote farm to school throughout October, reaching an audience of more than 2.7 million. If your organization would like to be a National Farm to School Month Outreach Partner during our 2016 campaign, please sign up here.
