Farm to School at Deerwood Elementary

Deerwood Elementary participated in the Farm to School program. We celebrated Farm to School for a whole week. Each day a special item on the menu brought to our table was highlighted in the morning school announcements. The students tried new foods and learned more about the Farm to School program. It was a success!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

At first there were not many students who wanted to be involved. Once a group of students started hanging posters and advertising over the morning announcements FUTP 60 became contagious!

How did you accomplish your goals?

Students encouraged each other to try new foods at breakfast and lunch. They included each other at recess and invited the younger students to join in the activities too.
