The School Market program is designed to use the safe and stable environment of schools to increase children and families’ access to healthy foods through a monthly farmer’s market style distribution of fresh produce.

The goal of the School Market program is to help combat weekend hunger by providing foods appropriate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition, the program serves to strengthen relationships among parents, teachers and administrators contributing to a supportive school community.

Consumption of nutritious food has proven to reduce absenteeism, behavioral issues and improve academic achievement. The School Market program helps to ensure students have the food they need to help them learn, grown and thrive.
