Nebraska is the breadbasket of our nation, yet when it comes to ‘living close to the land’ we are way behind. One of the last seven states in the United States to wholeheartedly join the farm to school initiative, Nebraska has a lot of catching up to do.

Farm to school means that students eat fresh local foods and learn about where their food comes from, all while supporting family farmers and the local economy. By connecting farms with schools, everyone benefits.

This video features voices from the Farm to School Summit that took place in West Point, Nebraska in March of 2014. Producers, school food program representatives, and community members focused on the opportunities and barriers to instituting farm to school relationships in the state.
