Farm to School
Interest is high among educators, students, parents and other folks to learn more about where our food comes from. As a result, we have compiled the activities and resources found below with the goal of educating students about agriculture, the food chain and the importance of eating a healthy diet.
We’re sure you will find them to be valuable resources to help children understand the role of dairy in healthy eating and in the community.
