The 2018 Maine Farm to Institution Summit is organized by Maine Farm to Institution (MEFTI) and the Maine Farm to School Network (MF2SN) and builds on the previous success of the Maine Farm to School conferences.
The Summit will gather farmers and food producers, food service operators, advocates, educators, administrators, and others dedicated to cultivating the power of institutions to develop an equitable and resilient Maine food system.
The Maine Farm to Institution Summit is designed to inspire and energize the network through sharing best practices and innovative strategies; enhancing network capacity through skill building; and strengthening collective impact by engaging food producers, educators, decision-makers, leaders, and policymakers in shared problem-solving.
