The goal of the Somerville Public Schools Food Service program is to provide complete and healthy meals for students, and to help students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to make healthy food choices.
In fulfillment of this goal, the School Food Service Department is purchasing produce from local farmers, building capacity to use more fresh and local produce in school meal service, and collaborating with school garden and farmers\\\' market programs to provide food and nutrition education to students and families. The start-up phase of this farm to school effort was initiated through the Institute for Community Health with funding from the Community Food Projects Program of the USDA Cooperative Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES), Grant number 2005-33800-16484.
