BRINGING LOCALLY GROWN, FRESH FROM THE FARM TO OUR SCHOOL MENUS

The F2S Chapter was organized in 2015 with the goals to increase the use of locally grown fresh and nutritious produce, increase meal participation and reduce processed foods while addressing food insecurity and obesity. Since 2015 the Vinton-Shellsburg Farm to School Chapter has worked with community volunteers and the Vinton-Shellsburg Community School Food Service Program to provide food samples to students and in the community, seek feedback from students and families on food samples, and incorporate new recipes, emphasizing locally grown, fresh foods into the school menu based on student and family input.

GOALS:

1. Local products for children in school
2. Healthy food options available for children in school
3. Provide fresh, good tasting food to children in school
4. Support long term health of children, by introducing a variety of fruits and vegetables.
