"Farm to School" refers to schools serving local, farm-fresh foods ranging from fruits and veggies to honey and meat. The more local foods we serve our kids, the bet- ter. One-third of U.S. chil- dren are obese or over- weight, and only 2% of children get the recom- mended serving of fruits and vegetable each day. Farm to School programs increase students' daily fruit and vegetable con- sumption significantly. Moreover, each dolfa invested into Farm to School stimulates an addi- tional $2.16 of local eco- nomic activity. In Maine, shifting 1% of consumer expenditures to direct pur- chasing of local products was shown to increase in- comes of Maine farmers by as ,much as 5%. And each new Farm to School job contributes to the creation of addition 1.67 jobs, Often schools incorpo- rate curriculums that help students learn about nutri- tion, agriculture, science, math and the path that food takes from the farm to the table as well as cre- ating experience-based learning opportunities by visiting farms and partici- pating in gardening, recy- cling, and entrepreneurial programs. The Farm to School con- cept is simple: bring tasty, nutritious food from the people who grow it to the school kids that want to eat it. The details involved in making this a reality can be daunting, however. With that in mind the Center for Rural Affairs has put to- gether a Farm to School Month Starter Kit, guide and several other re- sources to help wade through all the complexi- ties.
