Farm to School (FTS) is the largest local foods promotion program in the United States. With both federal and state support, the program creates economic opportunities for rural communities, U.S. agriculture, and food supply chain businesses. Through nutrition education and promotion, the program also seeks to improve the health and well being of children and households in the community, and therein supports ‘kids win’, ‘farmers win’, and ‘communities win’.
