National Farm to School Network | 30-Apr-2014
Use this training template to teach child nutrition professionals what local procurement is, why it is important and how to purchase local. The template consists of a customizable slide deck, speaker notes, handouts and an evaluation form.
The National Farm to School Network convened a group of 18 experienced farm to school and preschool practitioners to develop a series of peer-training templates. The training materials were developed by and for key stakeholder groups including farmers, child nutrition directors, educators and early care providers. Each training template consists of a customizable slide deck, speaker notes, handouts and an evaluation form. Anyone can use these tools to conduct effective trainings and share the value of farm to school in communities across the country. The project was funded in part by by the Newman's Own Foundation.
