October is National Farm to School Month, and it’s not too late to plan to celebrate the ways your program is connecting students with healthy, locally-grown foods.
www.FarmToSchoolMonth.org offers a host of resources to help you plan your celebration, including a communications toolkit to help spread the word about your events and a fact sheet to share with everyone in your community. The interactive Theme of the Day calendar includes links to tips and information about each theme and how they can be celebrated.
Be sure to complete the Farm to School Counts survey to share your stories and photos and be entered in a drawing for one of several prizes including free registration to the National Farm to Cafeteria Conference in Austin, Texas in April 2014.
