Informational Memorandum - Opportunities to Improve Head Start Quality through Farm to Early Care and Education Initiatives: Supporting Programs Competing for Head Start Funding
National Farm to School Network and the Policy Equity Group | 24-Jun-2019
Each year, competitions are held for Head Start funding in communities across the country. Incorporating farm to ECE into a Head Start application sets the stage for embedding farm to ECE into the activities and approaches of the Head Start setting. It may also open up opportunities for partner organizations to be contracted or hired to provide training and technical assistance for farm to ECE implementation. This memorandum provides guidance to farm to ECE supporting organizations on connecting with and supporting Head Start applicants in incorporating farm to ECE into their reapplication.
For more information on farm to ECE and to find state and local resources to support farm to ECE initiatives, contact Lacy Stephens, Program Manager at the National Farm to School Network, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
