Farm to School

Our Farm to School Program supports school outcomes by empowering students through food, garden, and farm experiences, while providing delicious and nourishing school meals that are reflective of the cultures of our students and whose ingredients are grown with practices that are respectful of our farm workers and our environment. Our program also builds diverse partnerships with regional farms and food access organizations to grow a more healthy, equitable, and resilient community.
