Farm to School

Warren County Farm to Table Program

What is Farm to School?
“Farm to School” enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and preschools.  In Warren County, we partner with local farmers, the local 4-H chapter, the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission, and the Warren County FFA program through the Agriculture CTAE classes to create a Farm to Table program that is student centered from seed to plate.  Our students are what make our program such a success. 

Why does it matter?
Georgia ranks #4 in the nation for fruit and vegetable production, but GA residents spend 80% of their income on food produced outside of GA! If the average household just spent $10 a month on locally grown produce, 1.9 BILLION dollars would be put back into the GA economy annually.

We love our local farmers!   


What is Feed My School?

Feed My School helps bridge the gaps in the nutritional value and quality of food served in Georgia schools, while providing more farm to cafeteria opportunities. The result is healthier students, decreased barriers in farm to cafeteria opportunities and increased awareness as students learn and experience, both educationally and nutritionally, where their food comes from.


Mission of “Feed My School: The Feed My School initiative increases the nutritional value and quality of food in Georgia schools and bridges the communication gaps from the farm to the cafeteria, resulting in healthier Georgia children. As the mission continues to expand and reach every school across the state, there will be decreased barriers in the farm to school efforts and increased awareness as students learn and experience, both educationally and nutritionally, where their food comes from.
