Family and Consumer Science Frameworks adds farm to table standards and benchmarks

Contributed by Maxine Peterson, Minnesota Department of Education

This summer, the Minnesota 2015 Family and Consumer Science (FACS) Frameworks for middle and high school FACS teachers added farm to table standards and benchmarks. The addition was due to collaboration with The Good Acre, Minnesota School Garden Coalition, Minnesota’s Farm to School Leadership Team, and FACS teachers who have implemented farm to table curriculum in recent years.

The updates in the Fundamentals of Food Preparation section of the curriculum address where food comes from, farm to table food systems, and local food access, including discussion of school gardens and food justice. The Frameworks in the Global Foods section of the curriculum addresses food systems, food sustainability, and technology on an international scale. View the Minnesota Family and Consumer Sciences Frameworks here or on the Minnesota Department of Education website for more detail on scope, sequence, and benchmarks.

  5. Farm-to-school is really starting to make an impact. I was doubtful in the beginning that such an initiative may or may not work. I will try to connect with them and would love to volunteer. Though I am a final semester student, I am not worried about the dissertation. I have to Buy Dissertation Methodology anyway, and the time that will be freed – why not spend that time on a cause. And what better cause would there be than farm-to-school?
