Celebrating Farm To School: A Win-Win!
We have had an amazing fall in collaboration with our Farm To School program! The goal of the program is simple and yet the reach has been great. The goal is to provide fresh, locally sourced fruits and vegetables for our students. We know that with opportunities to try foods, our children will be able to make healthy choices. In addition, this opportunity has allowed us to involve all of our students in planting and harvesting vegetables that we were able to enjoy in our classrooms. Last, the program has created an additional collaboration with the UNI Public Health Department allowing college students to help prepare and plan education that supports our program. We would like to thank our program volunteers and especially Jodie, Brooke and Robin for their tireless work on behalf of our students. Please enjoy these pictures and this movie showing student approval of a recent serving of kale! #everystudenteveryday #farmtoschool #unifight
