Sweet corn from the field
who eat farm fresh food.
Students try new fruit
at our strawberry taste tests:
“So good!” they cry out.
is the northstar light to health,
happy lives and shared roots.
FaHN’s farm to school program not only brings healthy and local food items to students, but also provides economic opportunities for farmers, leverages sustainable food system infrastructure, and creates a sense of community. I truly believe farm to school programs like this one can emerge as foundational pillars of just, viable, and equitable regional food systems that reclaim the right to food and health.
Although my work in food systems does not end here, I am humbled to have been a part of this work. Thank you to everyone who continues to make a difference and champion local food — I can’t wait to see where you take it!
