Are you working to increase the amount of local and regional food used by schools, colleges, and healthcare facilities in the Northeast? You’re invited to the 2015 Farm to Institution Summit at UMass Amherst on April 7-9! This first-year conference will feature 50+ sessions, inspiring speakers, local tours, good food, live music, and exhibitor fair and more. Join hundreds of farm to institution advocates for three exciting days of learning, sharing 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 conference will feature three sector-specific forums for farm to school, farm to college and farm to health care, plus a full day of cross-sector workshops, sessions, speakers, activities and more!
