Event description
SAVE THE DATE: The 2020 California Farm to School Conference will take place on March 26th and 27th in San Diego, CA.

About this Event

TICKETS OPEN: January 30th, 2020*

The 2020 California Farm to School Conference will focus on empathy and coalition building, with an emphasis on establishing "complete" farm to school programs that coordinate student voice, local food procurement, education in classrooms and cafeterias, and experiential learning in school gardens, agriculture and culinary programs, and farms.

The driving force of the conference will be participant-focused working sessions, where expert presenters facilitate collaborative learning opportunities for attendees. These sessions will go beyond standard conference panel discussions and "inspiration sessions" and will instead layer innovative ideas with how-to planning.

In addition to the two-day conference on Thursday, March 26th and Friday, March 27th, there will also be a free San Diego Farm to School Tour for attendees who are able to participate on Saturday, March 28th.

Conference Topics Include:

  • Farm to School Oral History
  • School Garden Learning
  • Student Driven Cafeteria
  • School Supported Agriculture
  • Equity and Food Security in School Food
  • Local, Federal, and State Farm to School Resources and Opportunities
  • Creating A Farm to School Collaborative
  • Cafeteria Environment and Taste Testing Tools
  • Evaluation, Implementation, and Storytelling

This conference is organized by the California Department of Food and Agriculture Office of Farm to Fork, in partnership with Community Health Improvement Partners (CHIP)

*PLEASE NOTE-- Space is limited for conference attendees. Set a reminder to register as soon as possible when tickets open on January 30th.
