The Farm to Preschool Subcommittee of the National Farm to School Network was formed in the Spring of 2011 at the Community Food Security Coalition’s State and Local Food Policy conference to better support rapidly growing interest in Farm to Preschool programming from diverse stakeholders and promote the benefits it offers to preschool-aged populations and their families. The Subcommittee, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, is engaged in building a national Farm to Preschool network, has conducted a national survey of programs, offered a workshop and other sessions at the 2012 Farm to Cafeteria conference in Burlington, Vermont in August 2012, and functions as a forum for sharing and disseminating best practices in the field.
The Subcommittee creates and disseminates monthly newsletters for members and all interested stakeholders which highlight policy and program news from around the country focused on Farm to Preschool efforts. If you are interested in receiving these emailed newsletters, please sign up at the bottom of any page of this website "Newsletter Sign Up." We also archive all newsletters and Subcommittee meeting minutes on this website for easy access.
There are currently five active work groups within the Subcommittee which are led by members and other stakeholders. Work groups include: Communications, Producers/Procurement, Pre-Service Training, CACFP and Research and Evaluation.
