October is National Farm to School Month! ICCSD Farm to School, a program of Field to Family, works with the Iowa City Community School District to serve local food in school lunches, grow school gardens, and teach kids about food and nutrition through our “Farmer Fair” education program.

To celebrate Farm to School in our community, people are telling us their stories about how Farm to School has had an impact on them.

Jeremy and Emily Britt write, “We have started our first compost and my daughter always wants to be sure to put table scraps and compostable foods in our bucket!! She has loved going to the Iowa City Farmers Market and seeing/hearing what the farmers do!!”

Do you have a story to share? Send it to heather.widmayer@fieldtofamily.org during the month of October. We’ll share your stories on our blog and Facebook page.
