Mushrooms make the grade.
Both fresh and IQF mushrooms can help schools serve on-trend, innovative, delicious, kid-friendly meals while complying with USDA guidelines and reaching their farm to school goals.
Farm to School
The mighty mushroom, grown indoors year-round, is ideal for hands-on demonstrations, classroom growing experiments, and tasty scratch-made meals that support your Farm to School Program! To maximize your efforts and minimize your workload, we have several easy to implement resources available.
Mushrooms are not only fun to eat, they’re fun to learn about too! From exploring the mushroom growing cycle to understanding the many health benefits of mushrooms, our resources can assist you and your teachers in reinforcing and promoting mushroom nutrition education with your students.
