What is Farm to School?

Farm to School centers around efforts to offer local foods in school cafeterias and applies to a variety of initiatives in Michigan, including school garden programs, fundraisers that take advantage of locally grown products, farmer visits to school cafeterias and classrooms and field trips to nearby school farms.

Since 2010, Petoskey Schools Food Service program has partnered with Cherry Capital out of Traverse City for fresh fruits and vegetables. We are able to purchase from local Petoskey farmers who are part of the Cherry Capital program. Each year, we increase our product line to encourage your children to try more fruits and vegetables.
