The Coulee Region Farm2School Program is proudly announcing a partnership with Gundersen Health System and Mayo Clinic Health System. For the past six years, the Coulee Region Farm2School program has been sustained through grant funds. As the program’s activities expanded and continued past the duration of grants, a clear need for sustainability was created. School district partners, which include the districts of Bangor, Holmen, La Crescent-Hokah, La Crosse, Onalaska and West Salem, each agreed to contribute towards ongoing program costs. La Crosse County Health Department also provided a match to these funds, but the program was still in need of additional support in order to sustain its current activities.
