Indiana Food Day

October 2019

What's It All About

One active piece of the Indiana farm to school movement has been the implementation of Food Day in the month of October to align with National Farm to School Month. Indiana Food Day encourages healthy eating and supports farm to school and other local food purchasing initiatives throughout our state. It is also a fun way to connect food and nutrition to all kinds of classroom curricula – from science to art!

What's the Theme

For 2019, join us in celebrating dairy and herbs! Highlight a local dairy product (yogurt) sprinkled with locally grown herbs to make a creamy, cool herbed yogurt dip.

When to Celebrate

Join students of all ages, from preschool to college, along with individuals statewide, in celebrating National Farm to School Month and Indiana Food Day any day during the month of October to accommodate the different school calendars.

American Dairy Association Indiana

The Indiana Farm to School Food Day Workgroup is partnering with the American Dairy Association Indiana to promote local dairy in Indiana schools.

Grow and Tell

Grow fresh herbs in your school garden to make a creamy, cool herbed yogurt dip. Use #INFoodDay to share your story on social media.
