Farm to School

Farm to School
In collaboration with the state of Florida, R.C. Hatton Inc. has participated in the state’s Farm to School program. The program’s goal is to teach children about the farming process, increase their awareness of where food comes from and improve their health by encouraging consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Through our involvement in the program, we also hope to inspire students to join the diverse agricultural industry. The program has many aspects such as working with school cafeteria staff regarding handling fresh produce and assisting with school gardens. We also participate in local food tastings, health and career fairs. R.C. Hatton Inc. has also hosted educational visits to our farms. Now, these kids can say they truly had a “field trip!”
