All participating CEs must complete and submit this form to be eligible to receive recognition. This form collects information about local products served, dollars spent on Texas products, details about educational actvities and community engagement methods. This information will help verify the completion of the below challenge parameters:
Eligible "Eat Local" products should be sourced locally - directly from a farmer, a farmers market, site or community garden, or through a distributor that works directly with local producers.
Educational activity examples include taste testing local foods, Meet the Farmer day, virtual or in person field trips to a farm or farmers market, virtual or in person garden-based learning activities, and educational lessons focused on local food and agricultural.
Be Social activities should include a social media post using either #FarmFreshTexas or #FarmFreshChallenge. If this is not an option at your facility explain how you engaged your community of parents and family members. Take a screen shot of the post on social media or take a picture of your flyer to complete this parameter. Submissions that are missing a picture will not be eligibile for the Best of the Bunch tier.
