Falmouth Farm-to-School

Our Mission: to root the farm-to-school movement into our cafeterias, classrooms, and learning gardens.

Our Vision: to graduate young citizens empowered to use their sustainability and food justice education to improve the health and wellness of themselves, their communities, and the environment.

Our Four Prong Approach: school gardens, local procurement, agricultural education, community involvement.

From student health and academic achievement, to job creation and family engagement, the benefits of farm to school activities are far reaching – and well documented! Read the report: Benefits Fact Sheet
