Farm To School

In an effort to strengthen the support for farmers and to provide a useful tool for schools, agricultural partners in Alabama have created direct selling opportunities for farmers and a useful tool for schools to search for local farmers.

Celebrate Farm to School Month

What is Farm to School Month?  

National Farm to School Month is a time to recognize the importance of farm to school activities in improving child nutrition, supporting local food producers and economies and educating students about where their food comes from.

This October, schools in Alabama can celebrate Farm to School Month by recognizing local foods, celebrating nutrition and agriculture education and promoting healthy school meals.  Celebrating National Farm to School Month brings awareness to how school food gives students the nutrition they need for classroom success.
