Get ready: October is Farm to School Month!
National Farm to School Month kicks off on October 1st, and Farm to Preschool Day is October 15th. Everyone can celebrate! Consider hosting an event or activity on that day, or anytime in October, to celebrate connections between children and local food.
Do you have the resources you need to host an event, attract media coverage, or generate support for your work? The National Farm to School Network (NFSN) has developed resources and activities to promote Farm to School Month in schools, preschools, communities and media outlets. NFSN's new Communications Toolkit contains an explanation of this year's Farm to School Month activities, a sample press release, suggested social media posts, sample text for newsletters and ideas and tips for making media pitches.
