Growing the Links between Farm and School: Best Practices for Farm-to-School Programs
This project will survey Pennsylvania public school district food service directors about their operations and current and potential purchasing of local and Pennsylvania foods; conduct 8-10 mini case studies of diverse Pennsylvania schools having some form of farm-to-school programming; and produce a farm-to-school how-to guidebook with information about best practices, current opportunities, constraints and policy needs in Pennsylvania. Clare Hinrichs, Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology, and Kai Schafft, College of Education.
Funded by the Center for Rural Pennsylvania.
