Farm to School

The Corvallis Farm to School program makes connections between our food system and our school system.

Our program increases the use of local foods in our schools, encourages children to make healthy eating choices, and supports regional farmers.

Classroom Food Adventures


Will kids happily eat their veggies? This is a question we often hear when we talk to adults about a program that teaches kids about healthy eating and good nutrition. Yet imagine kindergarten students cheering as they make a beet-berry smoothie, or 2nd graders asking excitedly for second and third helpings of the raw kale salad they prepared. In Corvallis, this is what happens in our Classroom Food Adventures program: kids are adventurous eaters every day!

What is Classroom Food Adventures? Classroom Food Adventures are hands-on, experiential lessons that give students an experience of cooking fresh, local foods. Students will increase their food systems, nutrition, and culinary literacy. Content and recipes are tied to the Corvallis School District Harvest of the Month calendar. Each grade-level-appropriate lesson connects preparing and eating healthy foods with math, reading, writing, or science. In Classroom Food Adventures, kids learn about Oregon crops, healthy eating habits, and teamwork by preparing recipes together in their classrooms
