The State Farm to School Policy Handbook: 2002-2020 is a tool for those working to advance the farm to school movement. The Handbook summarizes and analyzes bills and resolutions introduced between January 1, 2002, and December 31, 2020, from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories. It enables users to search bills by both jurisdiction and topic. The Handbook provides:

  • Analysis of and infographics detailing state farm to school legislative trends;
  • Summaries of proposed bills since 2002, whether enacted, defeated, or pending;
  • Case studies on successful farm to school advocacy and implementation efforts including local procurement incentive programs, state farm to school support for Native communities, and COVID-19 impacts on farm to school; and
  • Additional resources for advocates and policymakers to support state farm to school policies.

The State Farm to School Policy Handbook: 2002-2020 builds on a survey that was originally released in 2011, and updated in 2013, 2014, 2017, and 2019 and has previously been called the State Farm to School Legislative Survey.
