The National Farm to Cafeteria Conference is an incredible opportunity to network with people from across the farm to cafeteria movement working to source local food for institutional cafeterias and foster a culture of food and agricultural literacy across America.
Who will you meet?
We are expecting more than 1,000 food service professionals, farmers and food producers, educators, policy makers, entrepreneurs, students and youth leaders, representatives from nonprofits and government agencies, public health professionals, and others engaged in the farm to cafeteria movement.
The term “farm to cafeteria” encompasses all efforts to bring healthy, locally sourced food, nutrition and agriculture education opportunities to institutional cafeteria settings. This includes but is not limited to public and private early care and education settings, K-12 schools, colleges/universities, hospitals and prisons. The conference is designed to appeal to beginners and veterans of the movement alike, and attendees will come from across the nation and Canada, and from a variety of diverse backgrounds.
