The SHIP/Child Nutrition Services Partnership includes farm to school programming with locally grown produce offered in our school cafeterias and free samples offered to our students and staff. Farm to school programs encourage students to try new fruits and vegetables, offer students nutrition and agriculture education, and support our local farmers and local economy. These recipes have all been served in our school cafes.
SHIP Farm to School Cookbook
SHIP is expanding its Farm to School program! We have had Farm to School (F2S) Try Days in the schools, F2S2Class lessons in the classroom, and now we have F2S2Home. Seasonally, we will send home an F2S Activity Book to offer agriculture and nutrition education to elementary school students. In Fall 2020, we sent home fresh, local butternut squash along with the booklet and recipe and video links. Feel free to print out more copies HERE and explore the other local, fall crops. Visit the SHIP You Tube channel for short videos about how to prepare fresh veggies. Stay tuned for our Winter 2021 local vegetable!
