Child Nutrition: Farm Fresh Challenge

Join us to learn the how and when to participate on the Farm Fresh Challenge! The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) Farm Fresh Challenge is part of the Farm Fresh Initiative, a comprehensive effort that helps Texans establish lifelong healthy habits and supports local farmers, ranchers and economies. Since 2013, the challenge has recognized schools that include more local foods in meals and snacks and provide lessons about Texas agriculture. CEs who take the Farm Fresh Challenge will receive recognition for purchasing local foods, providing educational opportunities, and outreach that celebrates Farm Fresh Fridays. Taking the challenge helps boost local economies and encourages positive engagement with parents and families. Participating in the Farm Fresh Challenge is easier than you may think, as some of the food options you're already serving in the cafeteria  like milk and meat products are likely locally sourced from Texas producers, which means you’ve already completed some of the Challenge requirements before you ever pledge. Programs to participate are SNP, CACFP, SFSP/SSO.
