Ohio Farm to School is part of the National Farm to School Network (NSFN), an information, advocacy and networking hub for communities working to bring local food sourcing and food and agriculture education into school systems and preschools.
Ohio Farm to school initiatives involve connecting schools with farms by: bringing fresh, nutritious foods from local farms into school cafeterias; offering students experiential learning opportunities through farm visits, food and nutrition educational activities; incorporating nutrition education curriculum. Such initiatives serve to help create a generation of informed food consumers -informed of the nutritional significance of their food choices, as well as the economic, environmental, and social impacts.
You're welcome to contact me to receive our monthly Ohio Farm to School newsletter, which offers information on events, webinars, conferences, funding and news.
