THE STORY:

Hudson Valley Farm to School (HVFS) is a part of the national farm to school movement to promote student wellness by encouraging the use of fresh, local farm produce in the school cafeteria and offering classroom-based nutrition and food system education. We partner with local farms, chefs and food educators to bring hands-on nutrition and agriculture education into the classrooms, incorporate local farm produce into the school lunch menu, and establish school vegetable gardens.

In today's world of fast foods and pre-packaged meals, most children have a limited understanding of where food comes from and how it gets to their plates. The goal of Hudson Valley Farm to School is to engage children about food and give them the tools to make healthful decisions about what they eat.

Hudson Valley Farm to School is a project of the Hudson Highlands Land Trust, a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of the natural resources, the rural character, and scenic beauty of the Hudson Highlands.
