Farm to School

Farm to School enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers, increases market opportunities for local producers and supports economic development across numerous sectors. By changing food purchasing and education practices at schools, students gain access to healthy, local foods and education opportunities such as classroom nutrition education, school gardens and farm field trips. Farm to School empowers children and their families to make informed food choices improving health and well-being throughout the Greater Green Bay Area.

Live54218 is helping local school districts adopt evidence-based, comprehensive Farm to School programs consisting of four key strategies:

  1. Local Food Procurement
  2. Nutrition Education
  3. School Gardens
  4. Program Sustainability

Through a partnership with UnitedHealthcare, Live54218 has enhanced the impact of Farm to School in the Greater Green Bay Area. This innovative public-private partnership has brought Farm to School to eight school districts, now reaching 42,000+ public school students.
