Have you heard? Farm to Institution is the next wave of food system transformation, and FaHN is privileged to be a leader in this effort:
Our friends at Broome-Tioga BOCES and the Rock on Cafe are eager to offer more local, nutritious food in their cafeterias, and they’re working to make this a reality with a USDA Farm to School grant awarded to NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets and in partnership with Broome County Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Broome County Health Department, and yours truly, the Food and Health Network.
We’re now seeking local producers in South Central NY and beyond interested in expanding their markets to institutions. Are YOU interested or know anyone who might be? Check out the link above for more information. Please spread the word!
