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 supporting partner for the National Farm to School Network (NFSN) DC state-lead, DC Greens. Together, OSSE and DC Greens work 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.
