The purpose of the Farm-to-School program is to educate prekindergartners through fifth-graders and their families about the importance of choosing healthy, locally produced foods and increase awareness of agriculture in Pennsylvania. This initiative will also aid Pennsylvania farmers in gaining access to new markets in the commonwealth.

Eligible applicants include school districts, charter schools, or private schools with prekindergarten classes, a kindergarten program, or elementary school classes through the fifth grade, that are located and operate within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Applications will start being accepted on August 16th and are due at 4:59 pm on October 1, 2021
