Rhode Island Partners

Rhode Island farm to school celebrates local foods, exposes eaters to new foods and recipes, and supports local farmers in the community. We empower youth to think critically about the food they eat through hands-on activities — giving them a tangible understanding of RI agriculture and the chance to taste RI-grown foods. Food literacy education, school gardens, cooking programs, taste tests, and farm visits are major components of our work and key to farm to school success. Helping students build a relationship with their food encourages students to make healthy choices.
