Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller announced the nutrition team at Brenham ISD has successfully completed the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) 2022 Fall Farm Fresh Challenge. Throughout the month of October Brenham ISD offered locally sourced Texas foods and provided garden-based learning activities to strengthen students’ appreciation for Texas agriculture. Brenham ISD shared their achievements on social media throughout the challenge to further champion and promote local food for kids in their schools.
“Participating in the Farm Fresh Challenge has a real impact on students, communities, and local agricultural economies,” Commissioner Miller said. “Connecting Texas farmers with school nutrition programs builds healthy habits that can last a lifetime. I am proud of all the schools that participated in this year’s challenge, and I thank them for the hard work they do to keep young Texans healthy all year.”
Brenham ISD joined 156 other school districts and charter organizations for the annual event, pledging to Eat Local, Teach Local, and Be Social. By serving healthy and balanced meals, offering agricultural and nutrition education, and prioritizing local Texas foods, the school has demonstrated dedication to the well-being of their students while recognizing the efforts of local farmers and ranchers to provide high quality food.
“Our Child Nutrition Department has put in tremendous effort to not only meet the criteria to successfully participate in the Farm-Fresh challenge, but also to provide this valuable opportunity for the benefit of our students. Their dedication to providing healthy and nutritious food options is truly commendable and greatly appreciated,” Said, District Communications Coordinator Brooke Trahan.

Divisions included the Armed Division and the Unarmed Division, which encompass personnel inspection, Color Guard, regulation drill, and exhibition drill. Due to government budget constraints only the top two teams would move on to the National Championship on April 12 where normally the top 3 would be invited. The Armed team placed 3rd in their division and the Unarmed team placed 2nd. This will be the 7th straight year that Brenham will send a team to compete in the National Championship.
