Farm to Preschool brings fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables to select New York City preschools, giving parents, staff and community members weekly access to fresh produce.
Each week, from July through November, parents, staff and community members can purchase a produce box with a variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables at participating preschools. Prices range from $12 to $14, and Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards, Health Bucks, cash, credit and debit are accepted.
Farm to Preschool also provides nutrition education and on-site food demonstrations. Lessons include the benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables and how to prepare simple, healthy recipes with locally grown produce.
