Itʻs National Farm to School Month!Posted On: Oct 01, 12
October is National Farm to School Month and the National Farm to School Network along with Kōkua Hawai'i Foundation and the Hawai'i Farm to School & School Garden Hui encourage your school to participate! Find ideas and resources at www.farmtoschoolmonth.org/theme-of-the-day/. One of our favorite activities for Farm to School Month is hosting a farmer or chef visit to campus. Typical classroom visits include a discussion of the speaker's life and career path, what a typical day is like on the farm or in the restaurant, a food tasting or cooking demonstration, and question and answer time. For ideas on arranging farmer and classroom visits, along with farm field trips, see our Agricultural Literacy Partners List and Farm Field Trip Resource Guide at www.kokuahawaiifoundation.org/aina.
