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.
