The CSA and Healthcare CoP (Community of Practice) brings together professionals and practitioners to better connect the food system and the health care system by:

  • Promoting health care settings as a viable venue for local food
  • Supporting local food system programs that improve health outcomes (produce prescription programs, workplace wellness CSAs, etc.)
  • Better understanding the role local food systems play in improving the health of Vermonters

 

This group was known as the Health Crosscutting Team in the previous Farm to Plate Network structure.
