CPRCD serves as a fiscal sponsor for the Oregon Farm to School and School Garden Network (follow link for OFSSGN website)

The Oregon Farm to School and School Garden Network (OFSSGN) supports farm to school and school garden stakeholders in their work to incorporate healthy, local food into school meals

and to implement food and garden-based education. We provide resources, technical assistance, training and networking opportunities to Oregonís farm to school and school garden community.

Together, weíre bringing more money to Oregon farmers, providing healthy local food in school meals, and educating kids about where their food comes from and how itís grown! Since 2011, the OFSSGN and our partners have successfully advocated for $10.5 million in state funding for grants to Oregon schools to purchase Oregon foods and to provide farm and garden-based education, and have convened Oregon Farm to School and School Garden Summits drawing nearly 400 participants from across the state.
