Farm to School Manitoba is visiting schools and daycares this fall to take part in the vegetable bundling action!
Thursday, October 4, 2018 - Farm to School Manitoba visited Lockport School
The Lockport Band Parents Association has been participating in the Farm to School fundraiser for the past six years to assist in covering expenses related to musical studies, annual music retreats and participation/attendance to festivals.
This year, Lockport School achieved their highest fundraising profit amount to date at over $7,500. That means they sold over $15,000 of fresh, Manitoba produce! Congratulations and way to go, Lockport School!!
Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - Farm to School Manitoba Visits Oak Park High School
Oak Park High School has participated in Farm to School for many years. For their current fundraiser, multiple groups of students are putting in efforts to help fund a few different initiatives, including a student trip to Kenya, a student trip to Europe and for the band program!
Aside of from fundraising with local vegetables, this group also did a local cheese fundraiser with Bothwell Cheese. Way to support local foods, Oak Park High School!!
Thursday, November 1, 2018 - Farm to School Manitoba Visits J.A. Cuddy School
This is the first time that J.A. Cuddy School has participated in the Farm to School fundraiser. And from the sea of vegetable bundles, it looks like it was a success! The enthusiastic student council put together all the bundles efficiently while showing off some wacky hairstyles for their Spirit Week's Crazy Hair Day.
The school chose to participate in this fundraising program as there are many farming families in their community. They plan on using their raised funds towards field trips and towards bringing in special guests for the students like authors. Congratulations to all the students and families of J.A Cuddy on your first Farm to School Manitoba fundraiser!
Monday, November 5, 2018 - Farm to School Manitoba Visits Ecole Howden
As returning program participants, the parents and volunteers of Ecole Howden were pros at putting together their vegetable bundles. Check out the progress from unloading the truck to the neatly arranged bundles below!
The school has plans to carry out multiple fundraisers over the next few years in order to save up and build brand new playground structures for the students. We're happy that Farm to School Manitoba is able to be a part of Ecole Howden's efforts.
