Farm to School Month — video highlights benefits for students and small farmers

As the nation celebrates October as National Farm to School Month, check out the video below highlighting the benefits of California’s commitment to farm-to-school programs! The video was created with funds awarded to Slow Money SLO’s Farm to School project via CDFA’s Farm to School Incubator Grant Program. The SLO (San Luis Obispo) project is working toward streamlined ordering processes for school districts from small farmers as well as providing field trips, nutrition education, and virtual events.

Also, stay tuned next week for more information and celebration about California’s farm to school movement as partners from across the school-food and education spaces gather for the California Farm to School Conference, October 24-25.
