Farm to School/Farm to Institution

by admin last modified Aug 24, 2015 03:52 PM

Fresh, local food is findings its way to consumers through a growing number of channels.  Increases in local food sales to primary schools, colleges, hospitals, prisons, corporate cafeterias and other institutions can build local food economies and provide greater access to healthy food for the public.

UC SAREP helps build farm to school and farm to institution programs around California and the United States by partnering with communities to assess the effectiveness of these local food programs and recommending steps to improve them.

Our evaluations can serve as tools for school districts and institutions interested in beginning their own programs, and can help existing programs improve with practical suggestions for day-to-day operations.
