"Local Food" Definition for Institutions

Before the Farm to Institution Task Force could begin the work of increasing local foods available on the menu at Vermont’s schools, colleges, hospitals, nursing homes, and other institutional facilities, they had to agree on their definition of “local.” Task Force members provided Sodexo the Vermont +30 mile definition with maps and zip codes to facilitate and standardize local food tracking systems.
