Jersey Fresh Farm To School Recognition Program

JF F2S Logo Horizontal

The NJ Department of Agriculture’s Division of Food & Nutrition would like to invite New Jersey schools and farmers to involve themselves in a new JERSEY FRESH FARM TO SCHOOL RECOGNITION PROGRAM that will encourage produce sales to schools and allow individual farmers to promote local agriculture in their communities while encouraging the consumption of Jersey Fresh fruits and vegetables to our youngest consumers.

This effort strives to increase market opportunities for New Jersey farmers to sell produce to school cafeterias but also includes school gardening, farm visits, culinary classes and the integration of food-related nutrition education into the regular, standards-based classroom curriculum.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) also supports this program, through research, training, technical assistance, and grants.

If you have any questions, please contact Jacqueline Bricker, NJDA Marketing Specialist at jacqueline.bricker@ag.state.nj.us or (609) 292-4602.
