The Farm to Plate Network is responsible for collectively implementing the 15 Strategic Goals of Vermont’s 2021-2030 food system plan, as well as advancing organizational goals of members. The Network encompasses farms, food production businesses, specialty food producers, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, capital providers, and government. Priority Strategy Teams (PSTs), Topic Exchanges, and Communities of Practice convene to work on high impact projects to relocalize the food system that no one organization can do alone, as well as assess gaps, opportunities, and trends and monitor progress towards reaching Vermont’s Strategic Goals. If you're not a Farm to Plate Network Member yet - join us! It's free and easy to do.
