Midwest Farm to School: Connecting Farms, Schools and States
Join us at the Midwest Farm to School Conference at the beautiful Lied Lodge and Conference Center in Nebraska City, Nebraska, on Wednesday, March 2, 2016!
If you want to increase students’ knowledge about local and healthy foods, and increase the amount of local foods served to students in school - this is the place to be.
Throughout the day we'll spark connections and provide the necessary paths to bring the farm to our region’s schools. Experts will address best practices for establishing farm to school relationships. Successful local food relationships will be shared.
Ample time for networking will be provided, as well as coaching on helpful topics to address when in conversation with various stakeholders. Farm to school is not a "one size fits all" program - come share what you know and learn from others as we build a healthier future for our kids, schools, farms, and communities. Take a peak at what can be achieved in the short video below.
Audience: School food service professionals, students, school administrators and faculty members; farmers, ranchers, growers and food producers; community members and parents; and educational and food-related organizations.
