Farm to School

What is Farm to School?

Farm to School brings healthy, local food into schools, and provide students with hands-on learning opportunities that foster food literacy, all while strengthening the local food system and enhancing  school and  community connectedness.

Farm to School empowers students and school communities to make informed food choices while contributing to vibrant, sustainable regional food systems that support the health of people, place and planet.

Farm to Cafeteria Canada is proud to lead the pan-Canadian Farm to School movement.

For more information on Farm to School, please see our F2CC Fact Sheets.
