Farm to School's goal is to enable every child to have access to nutritious food while simultaneously benefiting communities and local farmers. Indiana's Farm to School program draws support from a variety of organizations and interest groups because of the benefits they offer in education, health and nutrition, supporting local producers, strengthening community self-sufficiency, and in encouraging environmental sustainability.
