In 2010, the United States House of Representatives declared October National Farm to School Month (www.farmtoschoolmonth.org<http://www.farmtoschoolmonth.org/>), recognizing the strong role Farm to School plays in promoting good health and strong economies.
Farm to School is a win-win situation for farmers, children, communities, the economy and the environment. In the U.S., the typical food item travels 1,500 to 2,400 miles from farm to plate, which means a head of California lettuce shipped to Washington, DC requires 36 times more fuel energy to transport than the food energy it provides. Research has shown that fresher products are tastier too, which encourages children to eat more healthy foods.
