Fresh from California

A free campaign to increase access to California-grown fruits and vegetables in schools.

The Center for Ecoliteracy is working in partnership with Gold Star Foods, Ag Link, Daylight Foods, and Food 4 Thought to make it easier for school districts to procure California-grown fruits and vegetables for their meal programs. 

We are hearing about the profound supply chain challenges school nutrition programs are facing this school year and will be tailoring these free offerings to meet your needs. You’ll receive resources to help you serve and promote these California-grown fruits and vegetables, including:

  • Marketing Materials. Beautifully designed promotional banners and posters for your cafeterias offered in both English and Spanish.
  • Menu Planning Support. Online group sessions providing best practices for menu planning and substitutions, recipe development, and nutrition analysis with a Registered Dietitian.
  • Farmer Visits. Direct connections with farmers in your region and the opportunity to sign up for virtual and in-person farmer visits with engaging student enrichment activities in partnership with the Community Alliance with Family Farmers.
  • Media Support. Media training and outreach to promote your district’s Farm to School program.
