Welcome to The Farm to School Healthy Choice Fundraiser. In addition to being a great, profitable fundraiser for your school and daycare centre, this program also provides numerous teaching opportunities. While students are talking about and selling fresh, local veggies to family and friends, why not also educate them about:

- Canada's Food Guide
- sustainable food systems
