Email News Alerts

Minnesota schools that bring locally grown fruits and vegetables to their cafeterias are encouraged to take it up a notch in September.


Schools can qualify for the “Eat Smart Food” contest by demonstrating an increase in the volume and variety of fruits and vegetables purchased per student, as well as educational outreach on farm-to-school programming.

The contest is coordinated by University of Minnesota Extension and the Minnesota Departments of Agriculture and Education.
