The NYSED Child Nutrition Program Office is thrilled to announce that we have partnered with Cornell Cooperative Extension, Harvest NY, to host the first ever NY Farm to School Summit with the theme: It takes a Village!
The summit will be held November 21st-22nd, 2024 at the OnCenter in Syracuse, NY. This exciting event will increase the capacity of program operators to buy and serve local NY foods in their school meals programs and will offer ample opportunities for developing partnerships between schools and local farmers/producers.
Workshops will be held on important New York specific farm to school topics as well as a local tradeshow where farmers/producers will be invited to showcase their products and network with schools. The conference will surely result in many collaborations between schools and farms that will benefit everyone and increase the use of local products in school meals.
Stay tuned for additional details that will be released in the coming months!
