Nourishing the links between land and table


REAP's Farm to School program brings fresh, local, sustainably produced food to children, establishes reliable markets for local farms using sustainable agriculture practices, and provides hands-on education in Madison classrooms.

In 2015, REAP sourced over 35 tons of fresh, local fruits and vegetables for use in Madison schools.

The 2017-2019 state budget proposes to eliminate the Wisconsin Farm to School Program. This translates to a savings of 0.1% for the agency, despite the program helping schools to purchase over $9 million annually in Wisconsin-produced foods. Our lawmakers need to hear that constituents value Wisconsin Farm to School and that it has a positive impact on our lives and livelihood. Help us spread the word about the Wisconsin Farm to School Program and the good work it does. Urge your lawmakers to put Farm to School back into the state budget.
