Farm to School
The landscape of food on children’s plates here in Nebraska is rapidly transpiring into healthy and delicious bites.
Farm to School is a natural fit for Nebraska's rich history in agriculture. The term "Farm to School" refers to schools serving local, farm-fresh foods. This can range from fruits and vegetables to eggs to honey to meat. Often schools incorporate curriculums built around nutrition, agriculture, and science. Doing this creates learning opportunities based on experience, like farm visits, gardening, recycling, and entrepreneurial programs.
