Know Your Farmer. Know Your Food.

Presentation during the Tennessee School Nutrition Association Conference, Chattanooga, TN, 2024.

There are clear benefits for building school food service menus around locally procured foods, and we discuss them! There are considerations and challenges as well, ranging from how to construct a bid to organizing logistics. Dan Spatz, from Healthy Flavors, and Samantha Smith Goyret from the Northwest Tennessee Local Food Network share their farm to school experiences along with listening to needs and seeking answers during the TN School Nutrition Association Conference in Chattanooga, TN on June 19, 2024.
