Arkansas Farm 2 School

Farm to school practices enrich the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local farmers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and preschools. The three main farm to school practices are: local food procurement, nutrition education, and school gardens.

Students gain access to healthy, local foods as well as education opportunities such as school gardens, cooking lessons and farm field trips. Farm to school empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.
