Evaluation for Transformation: A Cross-Sectoral Evaluation Framework for Farm to School

National Farm to School Network and Upstream Public Health
August 25, 2014

Evaluation for Transformation defines the outcomes that farm to school has the potential to achieve and it offers common language, guidelines and metrics to understand those outcomes for the first time. The framework is organized around four key sectors: public health, community economic development, education and environmental quality. Beyond the four sectors, the framework is also structured around three levels of action: program, research and policy. We hope that readers representing multiple stakeholders will use this framework as a guide to develop, describe, implement and conduct farm to school and farm to preschool activities and evaluations.
