Farm to ECE: Our Work


Harvest for Healthy Kids Educational Cards

The Department of Health has a limited number of Harvest for Healthy Kids picture card sets in English and Spanish that can be sent to programs to support farm to ECE. Reach out to Chris.Mornick@doh.wa.gov if you are interested in receiving a pack of cards for your program.


Farm to ECE Implementation Grant (FIG)

The Washington State Department of Health was awarded funding in the Fall of 2020 from the Association of State Public Health Nutritionists (ASPHN). With this funding, the farm to ECE statewide coalition is implementing eight strategies in an effort to increase awareness, build programmatic capacity, strengthen collaborations, leverage policy, and increase equitable access to farm to ECE. These strategies include:

Farm to ECE success stories

Free online farm to ECE trainings for STARS credits

Farm to ECE community needs assessment tool and resources (COMING SOON)

Farm to ECE sustainability plan (COMING SOON)
