Farm To School

A United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Program


In July, 2017, the USDA awarded Farm to School Planning grant to Codman Academy!  

This funding provides support for planning a better and deeper connection with local farmers, grain and meat producers to bring more locally grown, healthier and fresher food options to students. 

  • The FTS Planning Team will work to create to improve school menu, organize field trips to local farms, farmers market, and other agriculture-based settings to educate students about our local food environment, and asses purchase of new kitchen equipment! 

  • Starting in January, with the help of our Food Service Director, we plan to assemble a FTS Planning Team that will have representatives from our school administrative and teaching and wellness staff, Health Center, and community partners.

  • If you share this passion, feel free to reach out to us with your interests and ideas!
