21st Century Community Learning Centers

The Ithaca City School District Farm to Table program is funded by the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grant awarded to the District by the New York State Education Department in spring 2017. The grant’s purpose is to provide opportunities for communities to establish or expand activities designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program and offer families opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children’s education.

As part of the 21st CCLC, the ICSD Farm to Table program is guided by all stakeholders, including students, teachers, parents, our partner organizations, and community members. These stakeholders are represented by the Program Advisory Council (PAC). If you are interested in joining the PAC and helping guide our program, please contact Laurie Pattington
