Farm to School of Park County's Mission: Placing healthy, local and sustainable food on the plates and minds of all Park County school children and their families.

What We Do:

-Partner with pre-K-12th grade Park County schools to shape lifelong food preferences as we teach school children the connection between the environment, their diet and lifelong health;

- Provide hands-on experiences for school children as we grow foods in school gardens, harvest, prepare and taste various fruits and vegetables, and develop kid-friendly recipes to enhance kids’ acceptance and enjoyment of health foods;

- Work with schools to purchase and prioritize the use of fresh, healthy food in school meals;

- Support local and regional economies through encouraging local food production and increasing schools’ purchasing of local foods;

- Play a leadership role in the growing culture of health and wellness in Park County.
