Farm to School Month Starts Tomorrow!

Get ready! National Farm to School Month kicks off tomorrow, 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.

The National Farm to School Network has developed resources and activities to promote Farm to School Month, including a new Communications Toolkit. The 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.
