Nutrition Programs

Farm to School Program

Empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to build vibrant communities. The Chickasaw Nation Farm to School program focuses on educating students on the importance of eating healthy and learning the process of how food is grown. The farm to school team partners with Chickasaw Nation Head Starts and the Early Childhood program to provide monthly classroom lessons focused on introducing students to how produce grows and exposing them to fresh fruits and vegetables. The agriculture-based lessons and learning activities have been successful as students are trying new foods and are excited to learn where their food comes from and how it is grown.

The farm to school team also works with each Chickasaw Nation Head Start and Early Childhood Center to provide fresh and locally grown produce for students throughout the month. Students are introduced to new produce each month through an integrated approach of classroom lessons, meals in a cafeteria and reinforcement tools for family involvement.
