• The goal of Harvest of the Month is to encourage healthy food choices by increasing students’ exposure to seasonal fruits and vegetables while also supporting local farmers and building excitement about school lunches.

  • We provide individual and group training to farmers, food service professionals, and others to increase the use of locally grown foods in schools and other institutions.

  • Providing learning opportunities and improving communication between farm to school practitioners around the state.

  • The Worcester Kindergarten Initiative is a holistic farm to school program that teaches kindergarteners about local food and healthy eating.

  • We work to promote a vibrant regional food system through close collaboration with the National Farm to School Network and its Northeast Regional Steering Committee, as well as Farm to Institution New England.

We increase access to healthy, locally-grown food in schools and other institutions.  Locally-grown is good, for our children, our farms, and our communities.
