Early Care + Education

Farm to early and education (ECE) works to connect early childhood education settings to local food producers so that they can serve culturally relevant and locally produced foods to young children (ages 0-5), while providing related experiential education, opportunities for family engagement, and improving child nutrition. Farm to ECE is part of the broader farm to school movement in Oregon and across the U.S.

In these Oregon-specific guides created by Ecotrust you will find tools & resources for early care and education providers, specialists, and support organizations to increase local food procurement, gardens, and nutrition education in early childhood settings
