Event Details

Join us for a conversation about the impacts of farm to school – from economic stimulus to social equity – and an exploration of the challenges and opportunities ahead.

$10 suggested donation

The Farm to School movement is a critical driver of change in our food system, bringing healthy, local food to our most vulnerable eaters, and connecting local farmers to big, institutional buyers that boost their bottom line. Nationwide, Oregon has been a leader in farm to school for more than a decade, and now the movement is at a tipping point.
