Farm to School Month 2020

October is National Farm to School Month, a time to celebrate the connections happening all across the country between schools and local food producers. In 2010, Congress officially designated October as National Farm to School Month. Students celebrate by embarking on farm field trips, eating local foods in their school cafeterias, learning in their school gardens, and much more. Here are just some of the activities during Farm to School Month in the Gallatin Valley.

Mobile Feastival Scavenger Hunt: CANCELLED

UPDATE: (10/22) We are so sorry to make this decision, but after taking a look at Saturday’s weather report and our outdoor based activities, we have decided to cancel our Mobile Feastival. Next year, we FEASTival in early October!

Thank you to our community partners for investing your time and talent throughout the planning process: Lockhorn Cider, Treeline Coffee, Bozeman Public Library and Montana Ale Works.

Virtual Cooking Classes (Mondays throughout October): We will be hosting classes at 5:30 on October 12th, 19th and 26th featuring our Montana Harvest of the Month: apples! Email to receive the recipes and instructions before class, or  you can find all of our video classes on our Resource Page, IG and YouTube Channel.

Kids and Veggies Photo Contest: (October 12th-October 16th) WINNER ANNOUNCED NEXT WEEK! At Gallatin Valley Farm to School, we know how much kids love vegetables because we see it every day. We want to see your best Kids and Veggies photos to inspire more kids and families to eat more healthy, local produce. The best photos will be included in a prize drawing.

Montana Crunch Time (October 22nd): Grab a locally or regionally grown apple and join students statewide in a collective crunch in celebration of Food Day. Visit Montana Farm to School for more information about Montana Crunch Time, including a guide for schools. Be sure to share your crunch byte (video, photos, and audio are welcome) by using the tag #MontanaCrunchTime on social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
