Key program partners involved in
Farm to School Manitoba:
The Government of Manitoba has provided not only funding for this program but also valuable support, direction and resources to assist with the development, ongoing evaluation and widespread reach of Farm to School Manitoba. This program is supported by the Ministry of Health, Seniors and Active Living and the Ministry of Agriculture.
Peak of the Market provides all of the Manitoba grown vegetables in the program while also coordinating the logistics of the program from enrollment and orders to deliveries and customer service. These services are provided at cost in order to provide incredible, low prices for vegetables so families can enjoy fresh produce while schools and daycares can still achieve profitable returns.
The Manitoba Association of Home Economists (MAHE) is proud to oversee the coordination, marketing and community engagement aspects of the Farm to School Manitoba program. All resources, promotional materials and program presence in the community are produced and carried out by MAHE. MAHE also connects with collaborating organizations in Manitoba in order to ensure this program continues to be the best choice in fundraising for schools and daycares.
Farm to School Manitoba works closely with other organizations that also have an interest and commitment to providing healthy foods to schools, daycares and families. These organizations continue to provide valuable feedback and recommendations to the operations and reach of our program.
