Plan to Attend the National Farm to Cafeteria Conference , April 2014
The National Farm to Cafeteria Conference: Powering Up, will convene a diverse group of stakeholders from across the farm to cafeteria movement – more than 1,000 food service professionals, farmers, educators, youth leaders, policy makers, state/federal agency professionals, public health professionals and others-working to source local food for institutional cafeterias and foster a culture of food and agricultural literacy across America.
Cafeterias in schools, universities, prisons, hospitals and childcare centers serve more than 40 million Americans every day during the school year, placing the farm to cafeteria movement at the forefront of the fight to end obesity and strengthen local food systems.
Make plans to be in Austin April 15 to 18, 2014 for three days of inspiring field trips, workshops, speakers and networking. The conference is hosted by the National Farm to School Network. For more information: www.farmtocafeteriaconference.org.
