The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources’ (CTAHR) Farm to School Program seeks to promote health by addressing nutrition and food access at a community food system level, by addressing community-level needs for implementing farm to school activities which include education, school gardens and school farms, and local food procurement. Specifically, the objectives of the program are:
- To identify community needs related to farm to school efforts and resources.
- To develop and pilot curriculum for educators on farm to school
- To expand CTAHR’s Grow Eat Think (GET) Local website to include resources for implementing farm to school.
These efforts have been made possible through funding from CTAHR Cooperative Extension and the Hawai‘i State Department of Health and University of Hawaii SNAP-Ed. Big Mahalo to CTAHR Extension and SNAP-Ed leaders for your vision and support!
