We are a collaborative of local producers, schools and community agencies
who are dedicating resources, time and talent to introduce and incorporate
local, fresh food into the existing school food service programs; assisting
our region in sustaining healthy farms, schools and children.
It is our intention to support  regional economic development, by providing
an easy-to-use system enabling local producers to provide school systems
with fresh foods.
