Farm to School

What is a Farm to Cafeteria Program?

Farm to Cafeteria programs connect farm to fork bringing local, nutritious and sustainably produced foods into public agencies – places where we learn, work, are healed and play. Farm to School, Farm to University, and Farm to Hospital are all Farm to Cafeteria programs (differentiated primarily by their settings). These programs are an essential component of strong, resilient, and sustainable, regional food systems, – systems that contribute to the health of people, place, and the planet. Source: Farm to Cafeteria Canada Website
