On December 6, 2018, Mass. Farm to School will hold its fifth statewide conference, the Massachusetts Farm & Sea to School Conference. This year’s theme is Setting the Table: Communities Creating Change. The conference seeks to amplify traditionally underrepresented voices in the Massachusetts food system and identify strategies and resources for promoting racial equity and social justice as we grow the farm & sea to school movement.
The conference brings together individuals interested in farm and sea to school efforts in early care and education (ECE), K-12, and college environments, including, but not limited to, farmers, educators, food service professionals, wellness and public health professionals, student leaders, community organizers, policymakers, parent advocates. Join us for a daylong event with workshops, panel discussions, and networking!
