October is National Farm-to-School Month
Whatever you do this month, please take a moment to appreciate the harvest, thank a farmer, and smile about the fact that more than 23.5 million students across the country are engaging in F2S activities. These include: eating local food in school meals, cafeteria taste tests, school gardens, cooking classes, and farm fieldtrips. We are growing informed eaters!
