FARM TO SCHOOL

Farm to School is a national network of educators and school administrators working to influence food purchasing and education practices at schools and education sites to include more fresh, locally grown food. Growing Hope is an active member of Ypsilanti Community School District’s Farm to School committee. Through this initiative, students participate in school garden lessons, attend field trips to area farms, and are exposed to more fresh, local food in their school lunches and snacks.
