Farm to School
The State Department of Education, Child Nutrition Programs, and the Idaho Preferred program supports Farm to School programs in the State of Idaho. Farm to School Programs are growing in Idaho and any school throughout the state can participate in Farm to School activities.
Farm to School activities in Idaho include:
- Healthy Harvest: During the month of September, schools celebrate the local food harvest by educating students about Idaho foods, nutrition, and local agriculture, and serve fresh local food in the cafeterias
- Ag in the Classroom: Training teachers on Idaho foods and nutrition, providing ideas for incorporating Idaho food, nutrition, and agriculture into the school day
