The farm to school movement began in the late 1990s with a few schools in different states and has grown to more than 42,000 schools (42 percent of U.S. schools) in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Today, more than 23.6 million students are engaged with farm to school activities, and schools across the country spend $789 million on local food, according to the 2013-14 USDA Farm to School Census. This graphic illustrates the growth in farm to school activities by number of programs and number of states reporting since 1997.
