Resource Materials

The Farm to Child Nutrition Planning Guide directs you through questions to consider when starting or growing a farm to school, farm to child care, or farm to summer program. This planning guide should be used as a supplemental tool to the Farm to School Planning Toolkit. This guide can be updated annually to ensure you are working towards your long-term goals. It follows the same steps as the Farm to School Planning Toolkit, but in a more concise and action-oriented manner. The document includes guiding questions, a planning template, and a sample of a completed planning guide. When setting goals, make sure they are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound). Every summer, child care, and school program is unique, so use this planning guide to move forward in a way that meets your needs.
