Farm to School Month – CDFA celebrates statewide partners

In recognition of National Farm to School Month’s theme of “Rooted in Community: Growing Stronger, Together,” CDFA celebrates the community of individuals across all sectors, generations and interests – farmers, parents, students, advocates, teachers, food service workers and lawmakers – who share a common vision of an abundant, nourishing and equitable food system.

In the California Farm to School Network, such important partners include (pictured, clockwise from top left) the San Luis Coastal Unified School District Food & Nutrition Services regularly celebrating nutritious school meal offerings on their @slcusdfood Instagram page, the Spork Food Hub celebrating Farm to School Month through their second annual Spork Squash Fest, the San Diego Unified School District Farm to School Program @sdfarmtoschool inviting the community to join them in celebrating the farm to school movement, and the Capistrano Unified School District @capofood taking part in the Community Alliance with Family Farmers’ Farm to School Month celebration of the California Crunch, in which hundreds of school across California take one big, collective bite of locally-grown fruits and vegetables to celebrate local farms and healthy eating!
