Priority will be given to rural, remote and First Nations Schools.

Farm to School BC is a program that brings local and sustainable food into schools across British Columbia and provides students with hands-on learning opportunities that develop food literacy, all while strengthening the local food system and enhancing school and community connectedness.

Farm-to-school activities differ by school, but always include the following three elements:

  • Sustainable, Local Food
  • Hands-on Learning
  • School & Community Connectedness
