Healthy Child, Successful Student

Konocti Unified School District is proud to partner with Harvest of the Month, Farm to School and local farmers to bring fresh, healthy food to our students everyday…

Harvest of the Month.png

Harvest of the Month aims to:

  • Increase access to fruits and vegetables through school meal programs, farm-to-school programs, classrooms, school gardens, farmers’ markets, grocery stores, community gardens, worksites, and other community-based locations.
  • Increase consumers’ preference for fruits and vegetables.
  • Increase consumption of locally grown food items by connecting growers to their communities through farmers’ markets, food retail stores, schools, and food banks, among others.
  • Increase participation in daily physical activity and an understanding of why it is important to our health.
  • Expand familiarity with California grown fruits and vegetables, local farmers, the state’s rich agricultural bounty, and how food travels from the farm to our plates.

Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education sites.

Students gain access to healthy, local foods as well as education opportunities such as school gardens, cooking lessons and farm field trips. Farm to school empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.

Farm to school implementation differs by location but always includes one or more of the following: 

  • Procurement: Local foods are purchased, promoted and served in the cafeteria or as a snack or taste-test; 
  • Education: Students participate in education activities related to agriculture, food, health or nutrition; and 
  • School gardens: Students engage in hands-on learning through gardening.
