Local Food in School Meals

handshake

Learn and share ideas, resources, and best practices with other network members across Washington State about local food sourcing by connecting cafeterias to Washington farmers and products. Nutrition staff, food producers, non-profits and resource providers share ideas, questions, challenges, and solutions with each other to help advance work around the state on increasing local foods in childcare & K-12 school cafeterias.

This Community of Practice (CoP) consists of an email list with members statewide, and the opportunity to participate in regular conference calls with other members on topics related to sourcing local, Washington grown foods for school meal programs.
