Growing Farm to Cafeteria Through Scholarships

NFSN Staff Monday, March 05, 2018

The National Farm to School Network staff and partners are busing planning for the 9th National Farm to Cafeteria Conference and we hope you’ve marked your calendars and registered to attend!

As part of our commitment to equity, we’re always thinking about ways to make our movement more accessible and ensuring that it reflects the full diversity of communities across the country. For the National Farm to Cafeteria Conference and the farm to cafeteria movement, we’re committed to increasing access, especially for many “on-the-ground” stakeholders who lack the financial resources to participate in a national conference. 

In order to grow the farm to cafeteria movement and increase access to the 9th National Farm to Cafeteria Conference, we’re excited to announce that we’ve secured over 166 free registrations (and counting)! These scholarships will benefit a wide array of individuals as part of the National Farm to School Network focus on increasing attendance from:

  • Farmers and producers
  • Food service professionals
  • Educators
  • Native communities
  • Youth
  • People of color
  • ECE sites, higher education institutions, hospitals, and prisons
  • All regions of the country 

Thank You! 

Scholarship awards were made possible by the generous support of our scholarship funders. Thank you all for your support to expand access to the 9th National Farm to Cafeteria Conference!
