Food service

Here is a great opportunity for your classroom and students! Your school can host a local chef to demonstrate how to make healthy recipes. You can even use the ‘Chef in the Classroom’ program as one of your healthy eating plays. Check out the playbook on the Fuel Up To Play 60 website for further ideas.

Interested in bringing this program to your school? Apply for funding through the Dairy Dollars Grant!

Indiana Food Day

One active piece of the Indiana farm to school movement has been the implementation of Food Day in the month of October to align with National Farm to School Month.

Indiana Food Day encourages healthy eating and supports farm to school and other local food purchasing initiatives throughout our state.

It is also a fun way to connect food and nutrition to all kinds of classroom curricula from science to art!​
