National Farm to School Network

Northeast Region

Northeast Region Profile

The Northeast Region of the National Farm to School Network includes Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. Leaders from each state make up the Northeast Regional Steering Committee (RSC); an active group of farm to school innovators who work within their states and regionally to advance farm to school through networking, peer sharing, project implementation, policy, and convenings. Vermont FEED (A program of Shelburne Farms and NOFA-VT) serves as the Northeast Regional Lead Agency, supporting the Northeast RSC.

The Northeast Regional Steering Committee has a strong history of successful collaboration and has been a collective seven-state voice with food service management companies, policy positions, and regional partner coalitions, including the creation of the cross-state, cross sector Farm to Institution New England network. Active since 2008, the Northeast RSC has held national and regional conferences, forums and trainings, and worked to develop large-scale procurement projects to identify and overcome barriers to sourcing local food for schools. Being a region of small- and medium-sized states that rely on shared supply chain infrastructure, the northeast partners work together on many aspects of farm to school. Included in this is a deep partnership with Farm to Institution New England. 

The Northeast has pioneering farm to school leaders throughout the region and farm to school programs in all seven states, growing strong. According to the most recent USDA Farm to School survey, close to 6,000 Northeast schools are bringing the farm to school, serving over 3 million students and spending over $58 million on local product.
