Farm to School - New resources available!

Friday, November 30, 2012, 5:26 pm

Farm to School programs have been growing in leaps and bounds in Montana, and now many schools are sourcing local products from apples to beef to lentil burgers.  Montana Team Nutrition and the Office of Public Instruction held the first Montana Farm to School conference in August with over 130 participants attending from around the state!

Montana Team Nutrition Program provides Farm to School resources for food service staff and educators. Check out the recently updated website (opi.mt.gov/Farm2School), where you will find helpful resources for all areas of Farm to School—classroom, cafeteria, and community. New to the site are helpful tips on celebrating National Farm to School Month, resources gathered from the 2012 Montana Farm to School conference, and a downloadable version of our Montana Menu Board, which you can print. Printed and laminated (for use with dry-erase markers) Montana Menu Boards are also available to showcase the local and Montana foods in your cafeteria.
