Weld County School District 6 Farm to School Program (Nutrition Services)

Farm to School began in Weld County School District 6 (WCSD6) in 2008, when the District purchased one crop of cherry tomatoes for $239. Since then, with the assistance of numerous grants, including the USDA’s Farm to School Grant, the program has expanded to other fruits, vegetables, dairy, and meat and poultry items.

Today, almost 100% of our meals are prepared from scratch in our Central Production Kitchen (CPK), and about 25% of our food purchases are local, with the rate of local food purchases increasing each year.
