Farm to School

FCPS Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) wants people to think “fresh and local” when they think about the food that is served in FCPS cafeterias.  From a five year plan to implement salad bars in every elementary school, to a grilled-to-order BBQ menu to fresh salads and sandwiches for secondary school students, FNS is working diligently to change perceptions of school food.


While helping students become lifelong healthy eaters, FNS also seeks to support the local agricultural economy and is working to increase the amount of fresh food purchased from local producers. Farm to School Specialist, Christie St. Pierre, has been working to build partnerships with local farmers and community farms, and this section of the website will be updates as the Farm to School program continues to grow!
