Newfield Central School District is excited to be participating inTompkins County Farm to School this upcoming school year!
Tompkins County Farm to School is a collaborative effort involving New York farmers, Tompkins County
school’s Child Nutrition Programs, and Tompkins County Cornell Cooperative Extension.
The goal of Tompkins County Farm to School is to increase students’ consumption of healthy farm-fresh
foods while supporting New York State farmers. Each month, students will have the opportunity to try
recipes in their school’s cafeteria prepared with “Harvest of the Month” ingredients from local New York
State farms. Students will enjoy a variety of seasonally abundant fruits and vegetables through the
Harvest of the Month recipes. The long-term goal of Tompkins County Farm to School is to foster a
collaborative food environment involving classrooms, the local community, and one which supports
local New York Farmers and healthy eating among school children. If you want to get more involved
with this effort feel free to reach out to Chloe Boutelle (Tompkins County Cornell Cooperative Extension
Farm to School Coordinator) at email@example.com or Robin Wood (Newfield Central School District Food Service)
