Imagine a semi-truck full of fresh Canadian grown vegetables delivered directly to your K-12 school or licensed daycare located anywhere in Manitoba! Schools can up to 50% profit off this fundraiser which is great. Be strategic–group the orders so your school can benefit from the group sales and use the fund to pay for a new play structure or water bottle fountain like other local schools have in the past.

This healthy fundraiser helps promote healthy eating by supporting school and daycare nutrition polices. All produce used in the fundraiser is locally grown by Manitoba farmers, ensuring the quality of vegetables is fresh and locally produced. Farm To School also helps support community food banks throughout Manitoba. Participating fundraisers have the option of donating produce directly to the Manitoba Association of Food Banks with delivery included by Farm to School Manitoba.

As for recipes using some of the veggies in the Farm to School vegetable pack, here are a few of our favourites:

Mini Carrot Cake Loaves from Canadian Living. I made them into muffins just so they would be smaller for school lunches.

Baked Parsnip Fries

Chicken & Smokey Cheddar Stuffed Potatoes

Here’s to veggie goodness for kids and grown-ups alike. Involve the kids as much as you can in the recipes because they will have fun and learn how enjoyable cooking is at any age.
