Description

Have you been wondering how to communicate the value of local food to the students on your campus? Are you looking for fresh ideas for storytelling, advertising, and event programming? Join our one-hour “forum” to ask questions, share resources, and listen to engagement strategies from a panel of four speakers with perspectives from all sides of the issue.

The FINE Farm & Sea to Campus forum series is a collaboration between Farm to Institution New England and the Henry P. Kendall Foundation to create more peer-to-peer learning opportunities for dining program directors, chefs, foodservice operators, and other community partners who are engaged in procuring and promoting New England food.
