Farm to school is transforming Connecticut. Be a part of the transformation!
By 2032, 100% of CT ECE Centers and K-12 schools will have access to tangible, sustainable processes that connect education, agriculture, and nutrition, where at least 25% of food served is sourced locally, and all students enrolled have access to meaningful, empowering experiences with the local food system in their classrooms, cafeterias, and outdoor learning spaces.
There is a growing community of schools, farmers, state agencies, non-profit organizations, and inspired individuals across the state committed to supporting farm to school efforts across Connecticut.
Whether it's happening in the cafeteria, classroom, or community - it's making a difference, and there's fresh and exciting energy surrounding the many avenues of farm to school work.
The Connecticut Farm to School Collaborative is currently embarking on an action planning project for farm to school in the state - meaning, we're looking to gain consensus around the direction we're all headed in this complex web of work. We're coming together to find effective solutions to the systemic issues facing our children, our farmers, and our communities at large.
