Sharing ideas, tools, and resources to support a range of efforts to serve local foods in school and early childcare and education food programs.

Farm to School centers around efforts to serve local foods in school and early childcare and education food programs, but applies to a variety of initiatives in Indiana, including school garden programs, fundraisers using local agricultural  products, farmer visits to school classrooms and cafeterias and field trips to nearby farms.

 

  At a minimum, producers must be registered with the Indiana State Department of Health and receive GAP
  training prior to selling to schools. For a list of registered farmers/producers, click  here
