WEBINAR ARCHIVE: Placing Equity at the Center of Farm to Early Care and Education
National Farm to School Network | 09-Jan-2018
At the intersection of multiple sectors, including policy, education, food systems and social justice, farm to early care and education (farm to ECE) can be a platform for advancing racial and social equity. Access to farm to ECE opportunities may be one approach to addressing health and education inequities by increasing access to healthy, local foods and high-quality education opportunities for children and communities while promoting ECE policies that address inequity. Farm to ECE can, at the same time, address inequities in the food system by changing ECE purchasing practices and policies. In this webinar, the Policy Equity Group, the Food Trust, and the Center for Environmental Farming Systems share how they are evaluating internal structures and practices to prioritize equity and working towards programs and policies that place equity at the center of farm to ECE initiatives. This webinar was recorded on Jan. 9, 2018.
