Headwaters “Farm to School” Programs
HFFA is sending farmers to school! In this program, local farmers are paired with schools in Dufferin County, Caledon and Erin for class visits to teach students various aspects of our local food system and farming life. Engaging activities for kindergarten to grade 6 include many curriculum links and full lesson plans. This program is offered free to select schools during the pilot period.
Similar to a food box or farm share program, this pilot program invites families to purchase memberships and receive monthly local food packs through their school. Packs include samples of food sourced from the Headwaters region, information about the farmers and the food, including recipes, nutritional information and handling tips. Extend the learning to your home and enjoy wholesome local foods together!
