Farm to School & Insitution

This program supports local producers in providing bountiful, nutritious meals and snacks for all. Farm to School and Institution programs operate within three core elements: procurement, school gardens, and education. These programs are shaped through the collaborations of federal and state agencies and the work of farmers, food distribution businesses, processors, school teachers, chefs, food service staff, school boards, community organizations and businesses, parents, caregivers, and students. The Farm to School Council is administered by program staff. Staff work with the Farm to School Network to strengthen communities by providing statewide access to Wisconsin-grown agricultural foods, school gardens, and nutrition education with an emphasis on increasing access for food insecure communities.
