This October, share your Farm-to-School story

Actu - Mois De la ferme à l'école Oct. 2014

Schools, pre-schools and after-school programs, share your local food story this October for a chance to win a $1000 Farm to School grant from Farm to Cafeteria Canada as part of Canada's first-ever Farm to School month

Farm to School month celebrates Farm to School activities in the garden, in the kitchen, in the classroom, on the farm, and at the shore.

How can you get involved? Let your imagination be your guide! No action is too big or too small. Whether you take students through a corn maze, host a taste-testing party in the garden, try new recipes in the cafeteria, carve pumpkins in the classroom, or create veggie tales, poems or songs, every idea to connect children and youth to their food and to get healthy local sustainable foods on their plates and in their tummies is a grand one!

Share your stories. Afterwards, be sure to register your school and to send in your story and a picture of the way you celebrated. Farm to Cafeteria Canada will share it nationally! And, as a bonus, your school may be entered into a draw to win a $1000 grant to further your Farm to School activities.

Looking forward to hearing all about your celebration.
