First webinar in the 2022 Seeding Success webinar series.
This pre-recorded webinar features USDA Farm to School Program staff, who summarize grantee reporting requirements and review the processes for submitting no-cost extensions, as well as project and budget amendments.
USDA introduces the Start Simple with MyPlate campaign—the latest nutrition initiative from MyPlate.gov. The Start Simple with MyPlate campaign will provide ideas and inspirations Americans can easily incorporate into their busy lives to help them improve their health and well-being over time. Starting simple can lead to realistic and positive lifestyle changes to achieve a longer and healthier life.
Hear about the different ways to incorporate school gardens into your farm to school program as well as hear how schools are successfully procuring school garden produce for their meal programs.
The Two Bite Club and Discover MyPlate: Emergent Reader Mini Books are now available as eBooks! These free eBooks teach young children about the MyPlate food groups and include interactive features to test comprehension and make learning fun. Each eBook includes audio narration that highlights the text as it’s read aloud, drawing and coloring palettes, colorful characters, and interactive games and mazes.
For this farm to school planning webinar, we were joined again by Danielle Pipher of Vermont FEED/Shelburne Farms for a presentation about the creative farm to school curricula that she has seen and helped all sorts of stakeholders (not just teachers!) develop to engage students inside and outside of the classroom.
This educational storybook, available in English and in Spanish, was developed to introduce MyPlate to young children.
