Farm to School Farms

Did you know that Minneapolis Public Schools sources fresh, local produce from small and mid-sized growers who are committed to sustainable practices to provide a wide variety of fruits and vegetables for our school meals?

We are excited to partner with 12 farms and farmer cooperatives for the 2017-2018 school year to source 27 different vegetables and fruits for our school meals! We select our Farm to School partners through a formal bidding process each winter. Partner farms and farm to school items are selected using a value-based scoring system that takes price, produce quality, environmental sustainability, supplier diversity and farm values into consideration. Questions about our farms or becoming a partner farm? Contact our Farm to School Coordinator at kate.seybold@mpls.k12.mn.us. 

Meet our Farm to School partner farmers for the 2017-2018 school year!
Farm to school partners are typically small to medium sized farms using sustainable or certified organic practices within 250 miles of the Twin Cities.
