Farm to School Initiative

The Ohio Farm to School Initiative is part of the USDA national network and encompasses many local, state and regional partners. Ohio's Farm to School Initiative provides youth, pre-K through college, with access to nutritious meals, while supporting local farmers and communities. This program is intended to provide children with fresh, locally grown or raised food, and to educate them about many aspects of agriculture and their community.

Congratulations to our 2014 Farm to School grant recipients! This year’s grant awarded up to $5,000 for Farm to School-related projects and activities.
