The New Hampshire Farm to School Program (NHFTS) is a statewide program working to connect NH farms and schools. Once schools are connected to farms, schools are able to serve healthy, locally grown foods in their cafeterias as well as integrate farms, food, and nutrition into their curriculum.
The spring 2010 issue of the NHFTS newsletter is now available. This issue tells the story of one farmer who wanted to expand and how he connected with two schools, Northwood and Nottingham. Now these schools have local food and the farmer knows he has a place to sell his produce.
