Farm to Institution
We're making it easier for institutions like schools and hospitals to buy local food. We're also educating them on why it's so important for them—and for our environment and our economy—to buy local.
Our work in Farm to School (F2S) and Farm to Early Care and Education (F2ECE) is a major focus of our current Farm to Institution efforts.

Schools can serve as anchor institutions, leading other institutions in values-based purchasing. But it's not only schools!
Anchor Institutions can join with other buyers and leverage collective size for competitive cooperative bids on food purchases that support values like local economies, environmental sustainability, and more.
