Farm To School

Harvest of the Month

  • Florida’s Farm to School Harvest of the Month is an educational program that highlights a different Florida-grown product each month of the school year. Harvest of the Month cultivates a healthy food and farm connection by increasing students' exposure to seasonal foods while also supporting local farmers. Registered classrooms will receive a monthly email with links to our collection of materials that highlight a different Florida fruit or vegetable that is in season during that month. By using the materials in your classroom, you are helping to connect students to the bounty of produce grown locally in the Sunshine State.

    The Florida Harvest of the Month Program is subject to availability and may change without notice. For more information about Harvest of the Month, please email .
