Are We Really Making Change? - Measuring Farm to Institution Markets

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Institutions hold the power to build the core of a new regional food system, one that is prosperous, nutritious, and equitable. But we can't understand their impact unless we measure it. In this February Webinar we’ll hear from Nessa Richman, Director of Research and Evaluation for Farm to Institution New England (FINE) about how they are are measuring local food programs in K-12 schools, hospitals, and institutions of higher education and across the food supply chain. Project data comes from national sources including the USDA's Farm to School Census, Health Care Without Harm's annual survey of hospitals, and three original surveys implemented and analyzed by FINE focused on institutions of higher education, food distributors, and farmers.

Join the NH Food Alliance for this webinar to learn more about what they've found our about New Hampshire's institutional markets!
