F2S needs your Support
Cambridge Farm to School is a volunteer-run organization that assists with programming and facilitates hands-on education and learning opportunities in the Cambridge School District and the community.
All donations go directly towards programming.

Cambridge Farm to School promotes healthy nutrition and fosters connection to real food through education and practice, with a focus on community and the environment.
When you donate you help make these programs happen!
Chef in the Classroom Series
Since 2012, Chef Gene Gowan has educated area youth on healthy eating and culinary skills - and the program continues to expand! In recent years, CIC has become a part of the high school health curriculum, giving older kids the opportunity to learn some essential skills before they leave home.
There is much more demand for this incredible program than there is money available. Your donation helps keep this program running and expanding into the other schools in the district.
Perennial Edible & Exploration Gardens
A beautiful space located at the Severson Learning Center, the F2S has a large plot where rows and rows of raspberries grow as well as many other perennial plants and flowers. The other side is meant for exploration projects made out of reuse materials. A large shelter using repurposed posts and billboard vinyl will go up this summer to provide a place out the sun for students and volunteers to gather.
Your donation helps maintain and expand this program opening new doors to all sorts of learning opportunities.
These two volunteer growing programs provide enough tomatoes to make enough Signature Pizza Sauce to feed the district for the school year. Your donation helps cover the cost of the tomato plants and the potato seeds to hand out to volunteers and participating local 4-H and Scout troops. These plants and seeds turn into delicious ingredients for the students of Cambridge.
This program is set out to help educate our community about sustainability with an emphasis on Recycling, Reducing and Reusing. F2S works with the community to keep up to date information on where and what you can recycle. We also host an Electronic Recycling Event each spring at the High School parking lot. Two programs have developed under the Eco-Jay's, one at CES, the Green team and the Eco-Jay's at the KT Charter school.
Green Team-Our kids are the future of a healthy planet and these kids at Cambridge Elementary are truly Green Team heroes! The Green Team is a volunteer group of students that are trained to guide other students by identifying what items are recyclable, compostable, and garbage. They help to keep over 400 milk cartons and fruit cups from going into the landfill, as well as over 25 pounds of compostable food every day! Donations maintain working stations and give tees and awards to these amazing youth volunteers!
The Eco-Jay's at KT have worked this year creating a sustainable product review guide for the community by the community with the goal to help reduce waste and make our community a sustainable one.
Donations make sure these programs happen!
