Connecting Children With Local Foods and Farmers Through Summer Meal Programs Webinar
When the school year ends, children who depend on school meals can be left without easy access to balanced, nutritious meals. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) fills the critical hunger gap during summer when school meals aren’t available and offers a critical opportunity to get the freshest, healthiest foods to the children who will benefit the most. When SFSP programs purchase local foods, farmers in the programs’ communities also have an opportunity to sell their products into this larger-scale market during the height of their growing season, keeping money circulating in the local economy at the same time. In this webinar, join summer meal experts who will share best practices and lessons learned from their experience piloting their own “Farm to Summer” initiatives, and learn about IATP’s report documenting the opportunities and challenges of Farm to Summer! Join us on Thursday, August 20 from 10:00-11:00 am CDT for this webinar!

Aug 20, 2020 10:00 AM in Central Time (US and Canada)
