Arizona Farm to School

Arizona Farm to School Programs work to ensure children of all ages have access to fresh, healthy and locally grown food. Intensive nutrition and agriculture education link farm to school and/or farm to early care education through a variety of activities that engage students in learning and increase consumption of healthy foods; reducing food waste.

Benefits include:

  • Investing in Arizona’s local ranchers and farmers thereby supporting the local economy
  • Helping meet the nutrition requirements of federal child nutrition programs by providing access to fresh and healthy food
  • Supporting education initiatives by providing innovative learning opportunities in and outside of the classroom
