Every health program starts with One Small Step. Learning ZoneXpress knows it's not easy to start and maintain healthy food initiatives within school systems but starting is the most important part (and often the hardest). If you can take one small step towards bringing food from the farm within the school system, that is a great success and the beginning of a new, healthier direction. Below are a few ideas for getting started.
- Read "Getting Started with Farm to School" from the National Farm to School Network
- Take the pledge
- Get inspired by reading stories of successful Farm to School Programs that have changed the lives of many students. Click here to read an NPR article on how a Colorado Farm Helps Refugee Kids.
- Start bringing some fun products to your school system to support Farm to School by checking out all of Learning ZoneXpress' farm to school resources (and get a free bookmarks in October, too!)
