FARM TO SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT

Several studies demonstrate that the Farm to School (FTS) environment – defined by the policy environment and programming intensity or number of activities – influences how farms, kids, and communities are impacted by FTS interventions (e.g., Bonanno et al., forthcoming; Ralston et al. 2017). The goal of this fact sheet is to lay out differences across the U.S. in the FTS environment.
