Farm to School

We want to transform our community into a place where health, academic achievement, and the economy are supported by increased access to affordable, healthy, local food. We will promote a healthy food system, beginning with development of a comprehensive Farm-to-School Program to connect local food producers and food services directors as well as develop a more coordinated approach to nutrition education and school gardening.

UnitedHealthcare is the proud sponsor of the Greater Green Bay Area Farm to School Program. Through this innovative public-private partnership we are working together to increase local food procurement, provide nutrition education in 16 elementary schools across 8 school districts, enhance school gardening efforts, and improve the sustainability of Farm to School.

The Greater Green Bay Area Farm to School Taskforce aims to increase the number of schools implementing a comprehensive Farm to School program. Everyone wins with Farm to School! Children acquire the skills necessary to make healthy food choices; once established – schools save money and increase meal participation and farmers are exposed to an expanding market, keeping money in the local economy.
