USDA Farm to School Project
If you are passionate about local foods, gardening, agriculture, and/or student health, attend our F2S Stakeholder meetings. Over the next six months, meetings will be held once a month on Friday’s from 11:30am-12:15pm on ZOOM. Students, staff, parents, agriculture workers, and community members are welcomed. These meetings will help shape our Farm To School Action Plan that meets the needs and goals of our district.
Meet our Farm to School Planning Team
The CAPSLO F2S Team utilizes principles of Human Centered Design (HCD) to map the process for developing an effective Farm To School Action Plan. HCD engages people closest to the issue we are addressing throughout all steps of problem solving. Student, teacher, farmer, and community member feedback is imperative throughout this process. So far, our team has distributed baseline surveys and conducted one on one interviews to over 100 students, parents, community members, agriculture workers, and teachers so that we can learn more about the current Farm to School strengths and areas of opportunity at SMJUSHD.
