Farm to School Challenge Pilot

New in 2019, Sandersville Elementary & Rosa Parks Elementary partner with Fayette Co Farm to School to pilot a weeklong Farm to School Lunch Challenge including

  • Locally sourced café line items daily
  • Visits from farmers of locally procured items
  • Incentives and rewards for grade level with highest engagement
  • I Tried Local Food Today stickers

Sandersville Elementary and Rosa Parks Elementary saw 15% and 23% increases in student participation in the school lunch program AND enjoyed local food items like Cheesy Chicken Etoufee, apple chips, peppers, blueberries, lettuce and more.


Special thanks to FCPS Child Nutrition, Fayette County Farm to School, Fayette County Health Dept and Food Chain for the resoundingly successful Challenge!
