YCSD Food Service Company Aramark is now proudly serving sliced apples from Yonder Farm, located in Valatie, NY. Serving apples from NY state is one of the many farm-to-school activities that YCSD participates in.
Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education settings. Students gain access to healthy, local foods as well as education opportunities such as school gardens, cooking lessons and farm field trips. Farm to school empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.
