Farmers and School Nutrition Directors Connect to Amplify their Communities

" Food has this incredible way of connecting people. These food service staff know the students they serve in a really special way.
"
Recently, Education Service Center-Region 13’s Child Nutrition Department teamed up with TDA to offer a Farm to School: Amplifying Communities workshop, focusing on maximizing local foods on school menus, launching school gardens and local food procurement. Local farmers participated in the training, with conversations centering around how to sell to schools. The two groups also had an opportunity to network and build relationships. Read more about the groups experience at the training here.
