We offer professional development through trainings, consultation and courses, including our Farm to School Institute. We undertake research to inform food system investments and develop new market opportunities. We offer tools and resources to share evidence-based best practices of Farm to School programs. We offer awareness-raising events like Jr. Iron Chef Vermont. We conduct advocacy work, to help adopt policy and expand resources that support Farm to School programs. We facilitate state and regional networks to build a stronger Farm to School movement.
