JOIN ASAP and support children and families through Growing Minds!

Together, we can help thousands of students, parents, teachers, Child Nutrition Directors, and cafeteria staffers across the region experience the value of locally grown foods. Together, we can help them form a connection to their agricultural heritage.

ASAP believes Farm to School is an important component of a thriving local food movement and we know you do too. It opens markets for farmers and brings fresh local food—and the faces behind that food—to children and families. 

YOU ensure the success of Growing Minds and all of ASAP’s vital programs. Here are some examples of what we can accomplish with your contribution:

  • $1,000 expands markets for farmers, whether a grocery store or a local restaurant.
  • $500 brings a class of school children to a local farm.
  • $100 funds a cooking demo on how to prepare fresh foods.
  • $50 trains a farmer in new business skills.

Please use the secure donation form below to increase the region’s access to the freshest, healthiest, best-tasting food around. Thank you for your support!
