We welcome your interest in sponsoring the 2017 New England Farm to Institution Summit. Food system stakeholders across our region are recognizing that the food institutions serve matters. It makes an impact on the 3.8 million people who eat in our school, college and hospital cafeterias, the local economy, and our natural resources.

Your sponsorship directly supports the ability of New England farm to institution network leaders to gather at the F2ISummit and build a strong regional food system of viable farm and food businesses, engaged institutions, and well-nourished communities.
