Farm To School

In an effort to strengthen the support for farmers and to provide a useful tool for schools, agricultural partners in Alabama have created direct selling opportunities for farmers and a useful tool for schools to search for local farmers.

About Farm to School

Alabama offers direct marketing opportunities for farmers including the ability to sell directly to schools. If you are a producer in Alabama offering fresh fruits and vegetables directly to schools or might be interested in selling to schools, please take a few minutes to sign up.

The Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries has partnered with the North Alabama Food Bank, the Alabama Farmers Federation, the State Department of Education and local schools to increase local sales of commodities to be used in school cafeterias. This survey will help create a network of farmers who are capable of providing large quantities of locally-produced fruits and vegetables to participating schools.

If you are a nutritionist, administrative or support staff at a school in Alabama, search our database of farmers to find fresh fruits and vegetables.
