History

Farms to K has its roots in a service-learning project undertaken by the "Commitments" first-year seminar taught by Dr. Amelia Katanski in Fall 2005.  The seminar learned about the local food system and assessed the possibility of starting a Farms to College program at Kalamazoo College.  For their final project, Commitments students sponsored a roundtable discussion amount the constituencies who would need to work together to make such a program possible.  Our food service manager, student organization representatives, faculty, staff, community partners, and local growers decided at this meeting to move forward with the project and to form an organization through which they could work together.
