Farm to School Month

Raising our voices together

October is National Farm to School Month! Join us as we 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, preschools, communities and organizations in all 50 states and D.C. will be celebrating this October. 

The National Farm to School Network advocated for the creation of National Farm to School Month and now organizes the annual celebration in partnership with hundreds of partner organizations. 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. 

Everyone can celebrate Farm to School Month! Follow the National Farm to School Network on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and read our Farm to School Month blogs. And, don’t forget to check in with your local school or State Lead to learn how Farm to School Month is being celebrated in your area.

Join our Big Day of Action

- October 22 - 

The deadline for Congress to reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act (CNR) is now. This critical legislation funds the USDA Farm to School Grant Program and many other essential programs for getting healthy meals to school children nationwide, including the National School Lunch Program. 

We need your help convincing Congress to act. How can you make sure your legislators know that farm to school is a win for kids, farmers and communities? Pledge to join our Big Day of Farm to School Action on Oct. 22!
