Farm to School Week
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services encourages everyone in the commonwealth to celebrate Virginia Farm-to-School Week, October 1-5. The Virginia Farm to School Network, formed in 2018, connects schools with local food producers to purchase fresh, healthy foods for school cafeterias, preschools and summer feeding programs while enhancing educational opportunities in school gardens, classrooms and cafeterias.
Virginia Farm-to-School Week celebrations include the following special events:
All Virginians are encouraged to make some noise for local farm-to-school programs by participating in the Crunch Heard ‘Round the Commonwealth on October 5 at 10 a.m. by simultaneously taking a bite out of a Virginia apple.
Additional information about celebrating Virginia Farm-to-School Week and the Crunch Heard ‘Round the Commonwealth can be found on VDOE’s School Nutrition webpage.
