Farm to school connects schools, teachers, farms, families and communities to improve student nutrition, health and academic performance. Farm to school programs support local food procurement, school gardens and nutrition education. They connect schools to farmers by purchasing, serving and promoting local foods. School nutrition professionals, teachers, administrators, school nurses, school health coordinators, local farmers, students, families, policy makers and community organizations each have an important role in building capacity for and establishing a sustainable farm to school program.
