I’m inspired by your willingness to raise money for community educators and speakers. What percentage of your time is spent doing fund development?
Kerstyn Afuso
01:12:43
does the baltimore school district or city have a specific goal for % local in school food?
Anne Rosenthal
01:17:19
@kim - thanks for the question. we are lucky to have a charitable partner, friends of great kids farm (www.friendsgkf.org), that focuses on development to support our work--buses for field trip, take-home materials, student stipends. 1 part-time staff + volunteer board. BUT i think one of the main reasons the director of food & nutrition in our district has fought hard to keep the farm as part of the district is so we do NOT have to fundraise every year for salaries and operating costs. those are covered by our department's budget.

@kerstyn, also a good question - and i should have mentioned that "farm to school" can look very different district to district. some are more focused on procurement, whereas my team's specific charge has more to do with education. that said, we do commit through the Good Food Purchasing Program and our involvement with the Urban School Food Alliance to continuing to support local farms in our procurement. as far as i know, we do not have a specific goal for %/$...but we have consistently sourced between 20-30% locally. on sl 23 of our department's board update, you can say the breakdown in recent years: https://go.boarddocs.com/mabe/bcpss/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=BV3MPF59B56D

I second what @kara said regarding getting out there and getting involved if you are interested in food systems work. Go to your local food policy council meetings, volunteer for an hour with an org you like so you can meet other folks doing the work, find a person you admire in the work and ask them for coffee so you can get to know them. So much is about meeting the people and getting connected!
