This event is intended to bring together farmers, distributors, food service management companies, students and other campus representatives to learn various ways the barriers to local foods purchasing by colleges and universities are being overcome. We will learn about how campus farms are selling to dining services, campus farms that are funded by dining services, institutions who buy local through a purchase order, contract growing, negotiation of vendor requirements, and more! The morning will feature presentations with time for questions, followed by a networking lunch, and then we will have small group discussions to explore potential pilot programs and partners.
