Eat Maine Foods!

Hello,

I am working with two school districts in bolster Farm-2-School initiatives and am looking for examples of district level farm-2-school policy. If you can send me or point me to any such policies I would greatly appreciate it.

Sincerely,
Adam Burk

Adam,

I do not have an answer to your question, but I am hoping that if you get one, you would share with me. I am working on writing an article for the Maine Policy Review on the food system in Maine and I would like to include how much local food is going into school systems. Can you tell me what you learn?

Many thanks, Lee
Lee,

I will be happy to. I have a call out on the Comfood Listserv as well. While that won't be Maine specific I am happy to share any responses I get on this forum as well.

I can tell you that so far it is difficult to track how much local food other than milk is going into schools because of a few variables. We are working to see how we can address this.

Best,
Adam
