Utah Farm to Fork Task ForceFarm to Fork Logo

The Utah State Board of Education Child Nutrition Program (CNP) Farm to Fork (F2F) is an unfunded United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program that seeks to provide training and resources to child nutrition operators to increase the consumption of fresh, safe, and healthy, local foods. This program also emphasizes nutrition education regarding community foods systems.

Farm to school programming looks different in different locations, but it always includes at least one of the following elements:

  • Education
    Students participate in education activities related to agriculture, food, health, or nutrition
  • Procurement
    Local foods are purchased, promoted, and served to students
  • School Gardens
    Students engage in hands-on, interdisciplinary learning through gardening

The Utah State Board of Education CNP currently leads the Utah Farm to Form Task Force which supports these key elements through the work of six committees:

  • Education
  • Production and Distribution
  • Food Service
  • Gardens
  • Policy
  • Research/Data

These committees work together to engage local stakeholders, disseminate best practices, build support and awareness for Farm to Fork programs, and provide up to date and accurate information on applicable local, state, and federal rules and regulations.
