NEW ENGLAND FARM TO INSTITUTION SUMMIT

BOLD REGION. BIG CHANGE. BRIGHT FUTURE.

APRIL 5-7, 2017 | LEOMINSTER, MA

 

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.

 

The 2017 New England Farm to Institution Summit is hosted by Farm to Institution New England in collaboration with Health Care Without Harm and USDA Farm to School
