Farm to School

NY Thursday
We are proud to offer delicious local meals on NY Thursdays! NY Thursday meals are a meal of seasonal New York State foods cooked from scratch by the Rock on Café Team and made possible by the Broome-Tioga BOCES Food Service Leadership Team, Food & Health Network, Cornell Cooperative Extension, and by various and local farms.  

In addition to NY Thursdays, students will have the opportunity to taste test local foods and give feedback for future school meals!

Farm to School supports local farm livelihoods, strengthens regional food systems, connects members of the community through food and farming, and provides fresh, local, healthy lunches to students so that they can engage with their environment, learn, and develop healthy lifestyle habits!
