Racial and Social Equity Assessment Tool for Farm to School Programs and Policy

National Farm to School Network
April 16, 2019

This resource is intended to help advance National Farm to School Network’s racial and social equity priority by increasing our understanding of the work in the context of structural, institutional, and interpersonal racism. This tool is designed to be utilized by our national staff, Core and Supporting Partners, Advisory Board, and farm to school stakeholders to:

  • Increase our capacity to identify racial and social inequities embedded within organizational, local, state, and national programming and policy advocacy initiatives,
  • Support decision making processes which maximize opportunities for advancing racial and social equity,
  • Create a community of practice to empower us to take action within our sphere of influence, and,
  • Embrace our collective power to address the systemic changes needed for social transformation within the farm to school movement.

This tool is being released as an updated version in April 2019. The original version of this tool was developed and released by NFSN in August 2018.
