Kiski Area Intermediate School - Farm to School

Our school used the funds from the grant to purchase healthy foods from a local farm. The Program Advisors talked about the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and different ways to use apples in recipes. The students in the photo are part of the Running Club that we also started this school year with the help of the funds. The students track their steps using pedometers and are working to reach a goal of 100 miles by the end of the school year.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Throughout the school year, we will be able to have several taste testing events where students will have the opportunity to try new foods from local farms, thanks to the grant. Next year we will have to find different funds to help purchase the foods.
