What is F2S?

Farm to School (F2S) is a movement that promotes the use of locally- and regionally-grown foods in schools.

F2S activities and initiatives can include nutrition education in classrooms, farmer visits, signage promoting local foods, serving local foods in the cafeteria, school gardens, and so much more!
