Why support farm to school?
More than half of Oregon school children rely everyday on school meals. Almost half, go to children from low-income households. Oregon is one of a few states in the country that does not provide any funding to school meals, and we want to change that.
A farm to school bill in Oregon would increase the number of fruits and vegetables per meal by one serving, while giving a boost to Oregon’s agricultural economy and lowering our carbon footprint by buying local. The proceeds of this fundraiser will go to fund direct advocacy for a 2011 Oregon Farm to School Bill. Let’s make 2011 the year of healthy school meals that make kids thrive!
After dinner the excitement of the evening will commence with a live auction. A handful of wonderful vacations and experiences will be available for bidding including a 2-week stay in France, a weekend in Joseph and a weekend at the Oregon Coast. Please take a minute to check out the range of options ahead of time so you’ll be poised to take home the one you want!
