TEACHING THE NEXT GENERATION OF EATERS

The Farm to School Program brings farm-fresh, healthy produce and supporting educational experiences into Madison's schools, providing children with greater access to healthy foods and providing economic opportunity for local growers. This program also brings local chefs, farmers, and others into classrooms to teach children about cooking, agriculture, nutrition, and other important topics. 

 

CONNECTING FARMERS, CHEFS, AND DINERS

The Buy Fresh, Buy Local Program connects growers with restaurants, health care facilities, stores, and other businesses that serve diners and consumers, with the goal of building a long-term network of local producers and buyers. This program provides participating businesses with technical and marketing support and local growers with new market opportunities and long-term partnerships. 

 

BUILDING THE MARKET FOR LOCAL AND SUSTAINABLE FOOD

The Southern Wisconsin Farm Fresh Atlas is a helpful, detailed source for finding local farms, restaurants, farmers' markets, and other businesses and organizations that sell locally-produced goods directly to customers in Southern Wisconsin, including details on opportunities to visit farms and other producers. 

 

CELEBRATING LOCAL AND SUSTAINABLE EATING

REAP events celebrate and showcase the hard work of the region's growers, chefs, and other food system partners. These events bring together the community to learn more about local food, to interact with the people who grow and cook their food, and to participate in the local food system first-hand - by eating, drinking, and celebrating!
