Farm to School 101 is our new initiative to educate and inspire food service directors in every corner of the state. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, we were making our way across Massachusetts with a day-long in-person training program. Now, we are making our trainings available to everyone here on our website! Below you will find an introduction to Farm to School 101, as well as our three training sessions:
1) Build a Strong Foundation - Build a stakeholder team & set goals! 2) Strike a Balance - Design appealing farm fresh menus 3) Make it Real - Engage students & market your program
Training content will cover a variety of topics including building relationships with farmers and producers, planning affordable seasonal menus, and branding and marketing your program. This free training series is made possible by the Henry P. Kendall Foundation.
