Farm to Fork Program (F2F)


CNP Farm to Fork is an unfunded United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program that seeks to provide training and resources to child nutrition operators to increase the consumption of fresh, safe, and healthy, local foods. This program also emphasizes nutrition education regarding community foods systems.

Farm to school programming looks different in different locations, but it always includes at least one of the following elements:

  • Education: Students participate in education activities related to agriculture, food, health, or nutrition
  • Procurement: Local foods are purchased, promoted, and served to students
  • School Gardens: Students engage in hands-on, interdisciplinary learning through gardening

CNP currently leads the Utah F2F Task force, which supports these key elements through the work of six committees: Education, Production & Distribution, Food Service, Gardens, Policy, and Research/Data. These committees work together to engage local stakeholders, disseminate best practices, build support and awareness for F2F programs, and provide up to date and accurate information on applicable local, state, and federal rules and regulations.
