The Local Motive: Part 4 Farm to Institution - Screening & Discussion

Main Street Landing
Burlington, VT

There will be a screening and discussion of “Episode 4 – Institutions” on Monday, March 20th at Main Street Landing in Burlington.  The program begins at 7:00 pm.

Institutions such as schools, universities, camps, hospitals and prisons are places where the food consumer often doesn't have much choice. This is food intended to feed large volumes, and has to do so with typically small per capita budgets, USDA nutritional requirements and limited labor and equipment resources. To reach Farm to Plate goals in increasing local consumption, these institutions need to choose local food for their consumer. We?ll look at the paths to bringing local food into institutions and the passionate individuals committed to making Farm to Institution a reality.
