National Farm to School Network & MSU Center for Regional Food Systems
November 13, 2018

In 2018, the National Farm to School Network and Michigan State University Center for Regional Food Systems surveyed early care and education (ECE) providers across the country to better understand current initiatives, motivations and challenges in applying farm to school activities in early care and education settings. Nearly 2,030 providers serving 255,257 young children in 45 states and Washington, D.C. responded and shared with us the benefits and challenges of connecting young children to healthy, local foods, gardening, and food and agriculture education through farm to ECE.
