Farm to Preschool

Child Care Council has received a grant for Farm to Preschool. Farm to Preschool is a USDA approved program that aims to increase access to locally sourced fruit and vegetables for low-income families in the city of Rochester. The goal of Farm to Preschool (F2P) is to connect preschool children in child care and their parents/caregivers with local farmers and their products. The two components of F2P are efforts to increase the consumption of locally grown fruits and vegetables by providing convenience and access to purchasing fresh produce, and guidance on how to use it. The project involves an educational component consisting of food tastings and demonstrations on how to use the produce that is for sale.

These Farmers Markets are open to the community and run until September 12th.
