October 2019
October is a month full of things to celebrate or observe...National School Lunch Week, International Walk to School Month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Columbus Day, Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, National Pizza Month...you get the picture! We'd like to highlight one that you may not be aware of...National Farm to School Month.

What is Farm to School?
National Farm to School Month is a time to celebrate connections happening all over the country between schools, food service, and local farmers all year long!

Why Farm to School?
Farm to school provides students with access to local food that is nutritious and of high quality. Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food, and local food producers. 

Your SLA Café understands the impact fresh produce has on our children and our communities. That's why we provide students daily access to seasonal, fresh, locally sourced, natural ingredients.

How You Can Get Involved?
Celebrate National Farm to School Month by bringing food from local farms into your own kitchen! One way you can do this is by shopping for produce at local farmers' markets. Farmers' markets bring seasonal products from growers in your area directly to you. Click here to find a farmers' market near you!

We are thrilled to announce our approaching 4th annual Cookies for Cans food drive. This initiative has brought thousands of non-perishable food items to food banks and support pantries throughout our school communities!

Our Cookies for Cans food drive is held ahead of every winter holiday season. This incentive program provides free cookies in exchange for non-perishable food item donations. Students, at participating schools, are given 1 free cookie each day of the collection that they bring in a food donation. 
Facts about Cookies for Cans:
  • The event lasts for about one week, generally during the month of November.
  • Last year, Cookies for Cans collected over 12,000 donations.
  • Students are limited to receiving 1 cookie per day, regardless of the number of items donated that day. 
  • Donated items should not be in glass containers.
  • Charities receiving food donations are chosen by the school or from within your community.
  • Food items are generally collected in the school cafeteria by the SLA Café team.
Contact your school to find out the dates of your Cookies for Cans event. Help us spread the word about the significance of this service project in your community and beyond!
