Farm to School

The Harvest NY Regional Farm to School Coordinator Program provides comprehensive support to farm to school stakeholders, including school districts, farmers, distributors, manufacturers, processors, and food hubs. The primary goal of this program is to increase the volume and variety of local farm products purchased by schools for use in child nutrition programs.

To achieve this goal, Harvest NY will:

  1. Provide direct support to supply chain partners.
  2. Provide statewide support via resource development, training, and technical assistance to supply chain partners.
  3. Strengthen campus-to-community connections by identifying and developing opportunities for applied farm to school research.
