Maryland schools spent $18 million on local food served in
schools according a recent USDA Farm to School
Census. Maryland was the first state in
the nation to have every public school system participate in the Maryland
Homegrown School Lunch, an element of the Maryland Farm to School program.
Maryland, there are more than 2 million acres in farmland and more than 12,000
farms. More than 70 million lunches and 24
million breakfasts are served in Maryland schools annually. Maryland Farm to School is not the federally
funded Childhood Nutrition Programs but locally sourced Maryland foods can be a
part of the Breakfast, School Lunch, Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, Summer
Meals, Maryland Meals for Achievement, etc.
Maryland-grown products listed on your schools menu? Ask your school
cafeteria manager which items are locally produced. We encourage
students, parents, teachers and administrators to continue to ask for Maryland
produce in school lunches.
helping sourcing local product? No
problem. Contact Karen Fedor at Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maryland Farm to School program is sponsored by the Maryland Department of
Agriculture in partnerships with the Maryland State Department of Education
(MSDE). Contact Sarah Kilby of MSDE at
