Welcome to the Kentucky Farm to School Hub

The Kentucky Farm to School Hub is a free statewide website. Its purpose is to:

  • Help producers and school food service purchasers locate one another and communicate effectively
  • Provide reliable information and resources to both producers and school food service purchasers, and
  • Increase the amount of Kentucky grown and produced foods on school lunch trays.

The Kentucky Farm to School Hub offers farmers and food service directors the opportunity to post profiles of their operations, list products and services desired and produced, and access resources for planning, funding, procuring, selling, marketing, preparing and serving Kentucky foods to Kentucky school children.
