Ohio Days: My Plate, My State is a Farm to School program in Central Ohio that features one meal a month served in school cafeterias that is entirely grown, raised and/or processed in Ohio. This program envisions a school environment where children are served healthy, local, fresh foods in the cafeteria and learn about this food in their classroom or through experiential learning.

Franklin County Public Health (FCPH) created the Ohio Days program. Our role is to connect food service leaders with local farms and food throughout Ohio. As part of the program, students, their families and teachers are provided Ohio Days resources such as newsletters and a poster to feature the monthly menu.
