Field to Tray
The wait is over! The Food Trust is excited to convene our inaugural regional farm to school conference on November 4-5,2015 in Rockville, MD.
Field to Tray: Strengthening Farm to School Purchasing in the Mid-Atlantic will bring together farmers, food service directors, suppliers and other stakeholders from our region for a day of digging in to local food procurement strategies. This conference is supported by a USDA Farm to School Grant.
The Mid-Atlantic region has experienced significant growth in farm to school practices over the past several years, including the creation of training modules to support farm to school across Pennsylvania, the emergence of innovative strategies to move local food to schools in rural West Virginia, and the creation of strong policies supporting farm to school practices in New Jersey and the District of Columbia. This conference will be a sharing, learning and networking opportunity for key farm to school players in our region.
