'Farm to School' bill: Now's the time for local foods in our schools


February 25, 2019

As we seek bipartisan compromise at the Legislature this session, we Minnesotans can easily agree that we must protect the health of our children and the health of our family farms. As legislators of different parties, we believe our bipartisan Farm to School bill (HF 811, SF 1346) does just that.

States around the country have enacted policies to support Farm to School, yet Minnesota lags in instituting state support. Despite this, nearly 300 school districts, Head Starts and early care programs are buying some of their food from local farmers. It's time Minnesota established itself as a leader in supporting these efforts.
