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.

      Hi Christine,

      Thanks for contacting us. I’m responding to your question on our website.

      We do not yet have grants planned for 2019, but it is quite possible we’ll be issuing a call for grants at some time in 2019. My best suggestion for staying on top of this would be to follow us on social media, and sign-up for our newsletter (if you’re not already) .

      You can sign up for our newsletter on the home page of our website: http://www.farmtocafeteriacanada.ca/
      It’s sent out twice a year, in the spring and fall.

      You can also follow us on social media at
      Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/FarmtocafeteriaCanada/
