This uplifting video on the Farm to School Vancouver Area Regional Hub describes what makes the Farm to School program so important and how food links to so many aspects of our lives.
Farm to School programs bring healthy, local food into schools and provide students with hands-on learning opportunities that foster food literacy, all while strengthening the local food system and enhancing school and community connectedness.
Farm to School empowers students and school communities to make informed food choices while contributing to vibrant, sustainable regional food systems that support the health of people, place and planet. Farm to school programs differ by school, but always include:
- Healthy, Local Food,
- Hands-on Learning; and
- School & Community Connectedness
