Celebrate National Farm to School Month in Early Child Care and Education Settings: Farm to CACFP

Meeting Description:

On Thursday, October 25th, join USDA Food and Nutrition Service for a free webinar on how local foods and nutrition education can be incorporated into early care and education sites, including those that participate in the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).

Tune in to hear more about:

  • how farm to CACFP efforts, big and small, can be successfully implemented in a variety of settings,  
  • benefits of early exposure to gardening, farming, and local foods for young eaters,
  • where to find free Team Nutrition materials focused on gardening  and farming that can be used in early care and education sites, and 
  • how California-based North Bay Children’s Center’s Garden of Eatin’ program is helping to change the way children think about food through hands-on experiences.

All are welcome to participate, including State agencies, sponsoring organizations, CACFP program operators, child care providers and others working in ECE settings. Certificates of participation will be provided for those who attend the entire webinar. Both webinars will be recorded and made available at a later date on the Team Nutrition website.
