OSSE’s Farm to School Program assists schools in procuring and serving local foods by incorporating farm to school concepts into the school environment through teacher training, technical assistance, and District-wide events such as Growing Healthy Schools Month and Strawberries and Salad Greens Day.
OSSE acts as the Core Partner for the National Farm to School Network (NFSN). OSSE's Farm to School, School Garden, and Healthy Tots Specialists work together with Supporting Partners DC Greens, DC Bilingual Public Charter School, and FARMFRESH FoodPrints to convene District-based farm to school stakeholders from a variety of practice areas to create a network of resource sharing, professional development and a space to share best practices.
