Farm to School in the Classroom
The Farm to School Manitoba Healthy Choice Fundraiser is not only a profitable fundraiser for your school and childcare centre, it also provides numerous teaching opportunities for educators. While students are talking about and selling fresh, local vegetables to family and friends, why not also educate them about:
- Healthy food choices
- Canada's Food Guide
- Sustainable food systems
- Agriculture in Manitoba
- Local food production, marketing and distribution
Whether in preschool, elementary, junior or senior high school, we're confident this fundraiser can be tied to many interesting discussions and learning opportunities for your students.
