School Food FOCUS National Gathering
School Food FOCUS is a national collaborative of large school districts across the country. Together we are transforming school food by increasing access to
more healthful, regionally sourced and sustainably produced food for our nation's school children. Through the power of procurement, we leverage market
demand to drive impactful change for a just food system.
Change Beyond the Plate will convene school food service professionals, institutional purchasers, government allies, industry changemakers and food
system thought leaders.
Call for Proposals and Speakers Now Open
School Food FOCUS is seeking proposals that demonstrate how more healthful, regional and sustainable school food can drive food systems change. We seek

success stories and emphasize the importance of equitable food access for all children. Topics may include:
- Connecting the Supply Chain
- Data Driven Change
- Every Child, Every Plate
- Fresh, Clean and Delicious
- Innovative Procurement Change Strategies
All proposals should be submitted to the online form by Friday, May 27, 2016.
