Urban AgFest @ McKay High School
Oct 17 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Urban AgFest @ McKay High School | Salem | Oregon | United States

Our annual Urban AgFest celebrates National Farm to School Month and National Food Day by providing over 20 activities and booths connected to Next Generation Science Standards to over 1,500 Salem-Keizer Students. Activities focus on Oregon agriculture, learning in the garden and healthy eating habits.

SKEF’s Learning Gardens have thrived over the past years, exposing children to the importance of healthy lifestyles, environmental stewardship and local specialty crop agriculture. Through our farm-to-school programming, we are developing children’s nutrition knowledge, exposing students to careers in agribusiness and food sciences and increasing the consumption of local produce. This is especially beneficial in the Salem-Keizer School District where over 71% of students rely on federal free and reduced school meals.

Started by the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce as a chance for the business community to honor our educators, SKEF has kept the tradition alive.
