Farm to School Program

The Independence Community School District became a Farm to School Chapter with the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship in June 2009.

We promote local producers by purchasing fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and locally produced yogurt. We then turn around and prepare and serve at all levels of the Independence Community Schools

Thank you!

-Annette Harbaugh, Food Service Director.
