Building connections between farmers and the students eating their produce is an important step in a successful farm to school program. The Delta Fresh Foods Initiative designed this flyer to put up in school cafeterias as part of the Delta Fresh Farm to School pilot project in three school districts in the Mississippi Delta. Through their Delta Fresh Farm to School Network, DFFI has been able to provide nearly 10,000 pounds of locally grown foods to over 5,000 students in three districts, two of which are in counties where nearly 100% of students qualify for free and reduced school lunch.
