The Texas Department of Agriculture’s Texas Farm Fresh initiative connects Texans of all ages with locally grown food and agricultural education. Local Farm Fresh initiatives also benefit Texas farmers and ranchers by connecting schools, child care and adult care centers, and Summer Food Service Program sites with local producers.
TDA’s Texas Farm Fresh initiative helps schools, care centers, Summer Food Service Program sites and support organizations:
- incorporate local products into meals and snacks
- add nutrition and agriculture to educational lessons
- connect Texans with local agricultural producers
- create and/or maintain a garden
