October is National Farm to School Month, a time to celebrate connections happening all over the country between schools and local food!  Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools settings. Farm to school is reaching millions of students in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

On Wednesday, October 9, 2019 the Crunch Heard ‘Round the Commonwealth will make some noise for Virginia Farm to School programs and encourage schools, education centers, and community members to take action to advance the farm to school movement. Learn more about The Crunch event and how you can get involved by visiting VA Farm to School.  Watch for pictures on Wednesday on our division's Facebook page!
