Mission

The North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Lee County Center staff are proud to support local daycare centers in Lee County to learn about healthy eating, accessing locally-produced food, and developing gardening skills.

Farm to Early Care and Education (Farm to ECE) enhances the health and education of young children by developing systems and experiential learning that connect children and their families with local food and farms. It includes any type of activities in ECE environments that incorporate local foods through meals and snacks, taste tests, lessons, farmer visits, cooking, growing food, and/or community and parent involvement.
