Farm to School Marketing Campaign
With generous funding from the San Diego Foundation, The Farm to Institution Center is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Dunk Tank Marketing to develop a Multi-School District Farm to School Marketing Campaign for the 2018-19 school year. The campaign will create a coordinated farm to school marketing and public awareness effort in school districts within San Diego County. Stay tuned for more updates!
We are currently working with 5 San Diego County School Districts in our Farm to School Marketing Campaign
The Farm 2 School Collective
These five participating school districts have gathered together as The Farm to School Collective to hold a coordinated farm to school marketing campaign. The purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness of arm to school and to showcase the constantly improving school meals provide within Collective school districts. The Collective also works to mobilize advocates to show support for farm to school and school meal programs, both which are important in the fight against hunger, and obesity, among other benefits.

On Saturday, October 27th the Farm 2 School Collective held a Farm 2 School Family Picnic in Balboa Park. School districts, and food vendors provided tasty, local treats for families to enjoy. The picnic also included outdoor games to play, music to enjoy, and the opportunity to support farm to school efforts in San Diego County. Thank you to all the school districts, vendors, and local sports teams who made it out for the picnic!
