Cultivating healthy kids

The Ohio Farm to School program transforms how students and communities connect with local food producers. Growers sell fruits and vegetables directly to schools, creating jobs and strengthening the local economy. Students learn through gardening. Teachers share lessons on food, health, nutrition, and agriculture to further student wellness and promote healthier diets. Managed by OSU Extension’s family and consumer sciences and regional partners, the program has improved food purchasing and student wellness at Ohio schools.
