Jersey Fresh Farm to School Week 2016 runs from September 26-30, 2016.
Jersey Fresh Farm to School Week was designated as the last week of each September by a law signed in 2010 by Governor Christie. During this celebration, the New Jersey Department of Agriculture showcases schools that connect with New Jersey farmers to purchase local produce for school meals and to increase student consumption of healthy produce through school garden, agriculture and nutrition education.
