Kids eating Maine carrots is a project that hopes to serve all Maine's schoolchildren a single serving of Maine carrots each week. This project would enhance the supply chain between farms and schools, as well as help teach Maine schoolchildren about where their food comes from.
In order to feed carrots to Maine schoolchildren on a weekly basis, over 100 acres of soil are needed for growing. Currently, Maine mid-size family farmers have less than 40 total acres under carrot production.
This project would provide multi-year contracts to farmers to enable them to grow, harvest, store, and pack carrots that will be served in Maine schools.
