A Guide for Using Local Foods in Schools

This guide is designed to help schools, and particularly food service, reconnect with local food systems through their school food programs. Known as the “Farm to Cafeteria” or “Farm to School” movement, this nationwide trend in school food purchasing is directly changing the way children eat at school while supporting and strengthening local agriculture. This manual is intended for school food service directors, managers, and staff who are interested in making — or are already making — changes to the food students eat at school. This manual can also be used by farmers, teachers, school administrators, and parents as a resource for farm to school projects.
