Download/View Resource

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, an increasing number of schools and districts have begun to source more foods locally and to provide complementary educational activities to students that emphasize food, farming, and nutrition. If you are a local food producer, this means that there are more opportunities than ever to nourish the children who live in your own community. As a farmer, rancher, fisherman, food processor, baker, or other food producer, you can play a role in providing local products to schools to serve during breakfast, lunch, snack times, and supper, and in educating students about food and agriculture.
