Farm to School encompasses a broad range of programs in which schools are connected with local farms. Some examples of Farm to School programs include a school inviting a local farmer to present to students on small-scale food production; a school making a one-time purchase of locally grown vegetables to feature at lunch or snack during Farm to School Week; or a school making recurring weekly or monthly purchases from a local farmer and developing a relationship where the farmer plans his growing season to produce the type and quantity of produce requested by the food service director.
