Celebrate Farm to School Month

Thursday, October 15, 2020

Oct. is National Farm to School Month and the Office of Public Instruction encourages Montanans to recognize and celebrate our state’s bountiful agricultural products that support student nutrition.

“Agriculture is Montana’s number one industry and an important source of school nutrition,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Elsie Arntzen said Wednesday. “I want to thank Montana’s ag producers and school nutrition specialists for working together to ensure that our students have access to healthy, Montana-made foods.”

Learn more about statewide efforts and impacts with the firstever Montana Farm to School Annual Report! From training and resources to participation rates, the 2018-19 Montana Farm to School Annual Report showcases the program with comprehensive statistics and contextualizes the movement to build healthy futures for Montana’s youngest citizens.

Additionally, Montana Crunch Time is on Oct. 22nd. Whether at school, daycare, college, work, home, or on the go you can participate by crunching into locally and regionally grown apples. This year, states throughout the Mountain Plains Region are competing to see which state can get the most “crunches”. The state with the most crunches per capita wins the Crunch Off trophy. Help Montana take home the trophy by helping to spread the word and registering your crunch by Oct. 31.
