The 2017 New England Farm to Institution Summit will bring together hundreds of people who are leveraging the power of schools, colleges, hospitals and other institutions to transform our food system.
Please join us – and hundreds of other farm to institution advocates – for two exciting days of learning, sharing, exploring and connecting. The event will convene representatives from institutional facilities, along with their food supply chain partners and farm to institution advocates, to maximize collective impact and overcome challenges to buying more local food. The summit will feature programming that focuses on farm to school, farm to campus and farm to health care, as well as cross-sector themes.
What sets the F2ISummit apart from other conferences is that it brings together people from K-12 schools, colleges, hospitals and other institutions.
People from all six New England states will be attending. We invite you to inspire each other and set bold goals for our regional food system.

Of course, we’ll be serving lots of delicious, local food. In addition to focus areas on schools, health care, and college campuses, we've added sessions related to correctional facilities. Cross-cutting topics include food policy, supply chain management, food waste, racial equity, skill building, and much more.
