Farm to School Farmer Fair Grows on Students: Iowa City, IA

In 2016, we partnered with Field to Family to support their growing Farm to School program.

Field to Family introduces kids to local farmers, teaches them about where their food comes from, and provide samples of locally-grown foods.

Through two farmer fairs, 626 students and 42 teachers and staff learned more about where their food comes from, more about the value of eating healthy, and they made connections with local farmers working hard to provide healthy food in their community.

Want to learn more about Field to Family’s goal to increase the amount of healthy foods kids eat and get kids excited about eating locally grown foods? Follow their Facebook page @FieldToFamily.Iowa to learn more!
