Garden to Cafeteria

Garden to Cafeteria Logo

Garden to Cafeteria is designed to offer clear protocols for guiding students, staff, and volunteers to safely grow, harvest, and deliver fresh fruits and vegetables from a school garden or school farm to their cafeteria for use within school meals. Hawai‘i’s public non-charter schools may participate by applying for and becoming part of the Hawai‘i Garden to Cafeteria Program, which has been developed by the Hawai‘i Department of Education, Hawai‘i Farm to School Hui, and other partners. Garden to Cafeteria is an excellent opportunity to connect keiki with where their food comes from while building practical skills around food production, food safety, and entrepreneurship.



Hawai‘i Department of Education schools can find out more and get connected with the Hawai‘i Garden to Cafeteria Program by visiting the website.
