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?
Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) started our Farm to School program in 2013. We select our partner farms through a competitive bidding process each winter using a Farm to School Fresh Produce Request for Proposal (RFP). Farm to School partners are typically small to medium sized farms using sustainable or certified organic practices within 250 miles of the Twin Cities.  
Interested in learning more about our Farm to School Program or the process for becoming a partner farmer? Please email Kate Seybold, Farm to School Coordiantor.

For the 2017-2018 school year, MPS is buying more than 25 different varieties of vegetables and fruits from 12 farms and farm cooperatives in the region. Please see the map below for partner farm details.
