Farm to Child Nutrition Programs
Farm to Child Nutrition Programs enriches community connections with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices.
Farm to School is the inclusion of any of the three Farm to School pillars into school activities. The three core pillars of Farm to School are nutrition and agricultural education, school gardens, and local food purchasing.
Summer is a time of agricultural abundance. Using Washington grown foods in your summer meal program is a great way to take advantage of all the produce our state has to offer. Incorporating food education into your program also increases kids' willingness to try new foods!
Farm to CACFP efforts focus on early care and education (ECE) settings. Young kids aged 0-5 years are in a critical stage of development, and exposure to poor quality care and nutrition can result in delays in their development. This includes academic, social, and emotional development.
