What does "Farm to School" mean?

The Farm to School (F2S) approach brings healthy, local food into schools and provides students with hands-on learning opportunities, all while strengthening the local food system and enhancing school and community connectedness. F2S activities may differ by school, but it is always directed toward getting more healthy local foods on the minds and plates of children and youth.

For more information about F2S efforts and initiatives across Canada, please visit Farm to Cafeteria Canada.

The Farm to School Manitoba Healthy Choice Fundraiser is not only a profitable fundraiser for your school or licensed daycare, but it also supports students, families and communities in taking part of the F2S movement within Manitoba and across the country.
