WHO WE ARE
We're a statewide Network providing leadership, coordination, and advocacy to advance new and existing farm to school efforts in Vermont classrooms, cafeterias, and communities. We're farm to school advocates, practitioners, and educators across the state. Join us! Sign up for the listerv at the top of this page.
By 2025, 75% of Vermont Schools will lead the cultural shift to a values-based food system that engages 75% of our students in integrated food system education; community-based learning; nourishing universal meals; and the experience of self-efficacy; purchasing at least 50% from a socially just and environmentally and financially sustainable regional food system.
VERMONT FARM TO SCHOOL
83% of Vermont school districts report they participate in farm to school activities; that's 52 districts, 78 schools, and 12,347 students! Find out more about your specific district at the USDA's Farm to School Census.
The Network last met October 2019 in Montpelier to share progress between our Action Teams. We will be sharing more about our work from that gathering soon!
