Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join National Farm to School Network, Food to Institution New England, and Vermont Law School’s Center for Agriculture and Food Systems in a session about state farm to institution policies. As this movement evolves, so do policies that advance the movement. Come learn about current policy trends and promising practices in state policy: local procurement incentive bills, positions at state agencies, and grant funds for farm to school activities. Get the latest updates on what's happening in your state from the new NFSN State Policy Handbook, and FINE’s FTI Policy Snapshots. Get inspired to mobilize around policies that matter to you and then to transform the farm to institution movement!
