October is National Farm to School Month—a time to celebrate the connections happening all over the country between children and local food. From taste tests in the cafeteria, nutrition education activities in the classroom, farm visits and school garden harvest parties, we invite schools, early care and education sites, farms, communities and organizations to join in the celebrations.

In Minnesota, there are two statewide events currently planned.

On October 4, join schools across the state in kicking off the 2018-19 school year with Minnesota Thursdays. Since 2014, Minneapolis Public Schools has served an entirely locally-sourced meal on one Thursday every month at all their schools.

On October 11, students of all ages, from preschool to college, along with individuals across the Great Lakes Region states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, will celebrate the fifth annual Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch by crunching into locally grown apples at noon local time.

In 2017, over 1.5 million people joined in the celebration, including 244,002 apple crunchers in Minnesota from 619 schools and organizations.To register for these events and to learn more about Farm to School Month, go to z.umn.edu/f2smonth.
