Welcome to The Farm to School Healthy Choice Fundraiser. In addition to being a great, profitable fundraiser for your school and daycare centre, this program also provides numerous teaching opportunities. While students are talking about and selling fresh, local veggies 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 preschool, elementary, junior or senior high school, we're confident this fundraiser could be tied to many interesting discussions and learning opportunities for your students.
