Oregon Farm to School and School Garden Policy Approach

Health Equity Considerations

Oregon chose a state-level policy approach, working within the Oregon Departments of Education and Agriculture, to increase children’s access to and consumption of locally grown foods. Farm to school and school garden activities in Oregon are designed to reach all primary and secondary school children, either through the school meal programs, school garden activities, school wellness policies, and/or other food-related educational activities.
