Together, we amplify each other’s efforts to improve children's nutrition and wellness.
Throughout 2023, we are spotlighting our current partners and how these organizations are growing the next generation of healthy eaters.
National Farm to School Network (NFSN) has a vision of a strong and just food system for all and seeks deep transformation toward this vision through farm to school – the way kids eat, grow, and learn about food in schools and early care and education settings. They seek to increase access to local food and nutrition education to improve children’s health, strengthen family farms, and cultivate vibrant communities. They envision a nation in which farm to school programs are an essential component of a strong and just local and regional food systems.
Whole Kids Foundation has been a partner of National Farm to School Network since 2012 and has helped support NFSN’s National Farm to Cafeteria conference, bringing together hundreds of movement leaders working to source local food for cafeterias and foster a culture of healthy food and agriculture literacy. Together we work together toward the shared goal of getting more produce to the plates of children across the country.
