What is the Massachusetts Farm to School Network?
The Network will offer learning opportunities and improve communication between farm to school practitioners, highlighting and sharing challenges and best practices for the rich diversity of farm to school activities in our state. The Network will help us find the resources and connections we need to create integrated farm to school programs: programs that bridge the cafeteria, classroom, and community environments.
The Network is open to all Farm to School advocates, practitioners, and programs across the state.
How do I get involved?

The leadership team will be comprised of six to ten individuals representing a diversity of farm to school stakeholders.
