Farm to School Food Forum

October 12, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

$40

Join us as we gather farmers, local Farm to School leaders, and Nutrition Service professionals to share best practices, challenges, and innovations in Farm to Schools programs in Twin Cities K-12 schools. After a half-day of panels and facilitated discussions, enjoy a local foods lunch as you network with other attendees and talk to local legislators about the importance of advancing farm to school legislation in our state. You’ll also get guidance on how you can rally your community around Farm to School through Op-Ed’s in your local newspaper.

Come ready to learn and share, and leave inspired and empowered with the tools to help advocate for the sustainability of Farm to School in your district and beyond. What are you waiting for? Register today!
