Home - Seeds to Success

Sowing a brighter future.

Seeds start small. But do you know what happens when they have sunshine, water, and care? They grow into big, beautiful fruits and vegetables. Like seeds, people need care to grow big and strong. They need education, support, and resources. And that is exactly what Seeds to Success, the Louisiana Farm to School Program, provides.

Seeds to Success strives to enrich the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and preschools.

Every October, National Farm to School Month is celebrated in all 50 states. Join us and other schools and organizations across Louisiana in recognizing the importance of farm to school through activities, lesson plans, good local food, and fun! Are you looking for ways to get involved? Take the Farm to School Challenge!
