Farm to School Program. Nourishing News. Volume 4, Issue 2
Idaho State Department of Education
The Idaho Farm to School Program works towards having Idaho grown food served to students in Idaho Child Nutrition Programs. This important program is emerging at meal times across Idaho and nationwide. Child Nutrition programs are buying fresh food directly from local farmers as a way of improving the quality and taste of their meals. These Farm to School programs have a dual mission: they motivate students to improve their eating habits and health through improving the quality of the food served in schools, and they support local farmers. This issue of "Nourishing News" includes the following articles surrounding this topic: (1) Farm to School Benefits Children (Ed Herrera); (2) Idaho Farm Facts; (3) Celebrate Idaho's Bountiful Fall Harvest (Leah Clark); (4) Utilizing Produce from School Gardens (Rachel Johns); (5) Incredible Edible Idaho Food Posters (Heidi Martin); and (6) 10 Reasons to Eat Local Food.
