Join school nutrition directors and farmers from your region for a brief call on Wednesday, April 29 to discuss farm to school sales (schedule and details below, please note different times for each grand region). During the call, a farmer and school nutrition director pair will walk through a transaction so that attendees on the call can learn what it looks like. If time permits, farmers will also be able to give information about their farm and contact information will be shared. This call is strictly informational and not required to do business with schools.
