October is National Farm-to-School Month
It’s time to celebrate the farm-to-school activities happening around our community and across the country: food education, school gardens, and lunch trays filled with healthy and local ingredients!
Take the One Small Step Pledge to highlight the simple ways you – as community members, students, parents, food producers and nutrition professionals – can get involved in farm-to-school activities. Take the pledge now and be entered to win support for farm-to-school activities in the school of your choice.
Taste Washington Day is October 5, 2016!
It’s time to celebrate Washington-grown foods in school meals. Schools across the state will be participating in all different ways: The Washington Apple Crunch, locally-sourced lunch, taste tests, presentations by local farmers, etc. Taste Washington Day is a great way to kick off National Farm-to-School Month. Check your school menu for details on your school’s locally-sourced meal for October 5th!
