OLD What is Farm to ECE?
Farm to early care and education (farm to ECE) has three core elements: local food sourcing, growing food, and learning about food and agriculture.
Farm to ECE furthers the goals and priorities of the early care and education community including emphasis on experiential learning opportunities, parent and community engagement and life-long health and wellness for children, families and caregivers.
Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education sites.
Farm to school empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.
