Celebrate National Farm to School Month in October
October is National Farm to School Month, a time to celebrate connections happening all over the country between schools and local food!
Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education settings. Farm to school is reaching millions of students in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.
The 2016 National Farm to School Month theme,
One Small Step, will highlight the simple ways anyone can get informed, get involved and take action to advance farm to school in their own communities and across the country. Learn more about National Farm to School Month, how you can get involved, and sign the One Small Step pledge by visiting the
National Farm to School Network website.
Washington Unified is partnering with West Sacramento's
Vierra Farms to present our community with some very special opportunities to visit the farm, learn about locally grown food and participate in great family-centered activities.
