Growing the Farm to Institution Movement: From Farm to Plate, 9/28

This briefing will bring together leaders working to significantly expand the volume of fruits, vegetables and other foods grown by local farmers that are served in schools, senior centers, daycare programs and other community institutions. We will highlight the importance of institutional feeding programs to local economies and public health, highlight barriers to increasing the volume of local food served in institutions, and identify opportunities to scale up this important movement for the benefit all New Yorkers.
