Buy Local/ Seasonal Calendar
By buying local ingredients, a school can support its community and reduce the amount of energy required to transport the ingredients. Schools could get its students involved and take trips to local farms or even volunteer. It is great to know exactly where your food is coming from and how it is grown and produced.
