The Pine Point Farm to School Project, operated by the White Earth Land Recovery Project, is an initiative that integrates issues of health, education and food.

The goal of the program is to combat obesity and diabetes by providing nutritional education and physical activity through the Farm-to-School program, community gardening and building overall community awareness of healthy and active lifestyles.
