Farm to School is a broad category of programming that can be tailored to a school’s specific needs. It can include serving local foods in the cafeteria, taste tests, field trips, classroom education, gardens, hands-on experiences and more.
Waukee Community School District received a grant from the USDA Food and Nutrition Service’s Office of Community Food Systems to create an action plan for how to best implement Farm to School in the district. As part of the action plan, we have created a Farm to School Committee that meets in the morning once a month. If you are interested in severing on the committee, please email Kaitlyn Scheuermann, RDN, LD.
