Organic Valley believes in the importance of educating youth about agriculture and farming practices. So, this back-to-school season, Organic Valley, and Monadnock Food Co-op along with food co-ops across the country have teamed up with National Farm to School Network, a non-profit organization working to bring local food sourcing, school gardens, and food and agriculture education into schools, early care centers and other education settings.
From August 14 – September 3, Organic Valley will donate $1 from every Organic Valley purchase at food co-ops (up to $25,000). The Organic Valley purchases you make at our co-op during this time frame might result in a local school winning a National Farm to School Network garden! Every purchase helps as we work to bring healthy, locally-grown foods to our community, starting with childhood.
