SD&G Farm-to-School program launches at Seaway D.H.S.
Seaway District High School is hosting a special breakfast on June 21st featuring local food for students, in partnership with Healthy Eating for Better Learning Student Nutrition Program, All Things Food SDG Community Food Network, and Growing Up Organic.

Mountain - Jun. 9, 2011 - Seaway District High School is hosting a special breakfast on June 21st featuring local food for students, in partnership with Healthy Eating for Better Learning Student Nutrition Program, All Things Food SDG Community Food Network, and Growing Up Organic. This breakfast will officially launch “Farm-to-School” in Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry.

Farm-to-School programs connect students with local food, through activities such as local food events, salad bar programs, educational farm and farmer visits, school gardens, and other activities promoting local, healthy food.

The Farm-to-School breakfast will support local, sustainable producers in SD&G, and raise awareness in regards to incorporating local healthy food into school food. The breakfast will feature a local menu of pancakes made with locally ground flour, and all locally produced fresh berries, maple syrup, eggs and organic dairy products.

After the breakfast, several classes will be participating in a farm visit to a local 200- acre certified organic farm, Waratah Downs, with Growing Up Organic. The school plans to run a Farm-to-School event once a month the following school year.

To inquire about developing a Farm-to-School program at your school, or for more information about the Seaway Farm-to-School event, please contact Dana Kittle, All Things Food Coordinator: dana@allthingsfoodbouffe360.ca or (613) 989-3830.
