November 15, 2017 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Looking to increase your local purchases but not sure where to start? Join Michael Webster, the general manager of dining at the Hotchkiss School in Connecticut, and Rachel Harb, the training coordinator at Massachusetts Farm to School, for a one-hour webinar focusing on velocity reports for campus dining service. Learn how to amplify your purchasing power and streamline the planning process with practical data gathering and velocity report analysis.
Mike will lead participants step-by-step through the process, using chicken purchasing as an example. Find out how velocity reports and strategic planning powered the Hotchkiss School to source 100% of their chicken locally. Next, Rachel will share how Chicopee Public Schools use velocity reports to buy more local food. You’ll come away with tips to analyze your local food buy and balance the budget after selecting higher priced local products.
This webinar is designed specifically for dining service managers, chefs, and purchasing coordinators at institutions in New England and beyond. The Getting Down to Details webinar series is designed to improve the way New England’s farm and sea to campus supply chain works and is co-hosted by the New England Farm & Sea to Campus Network and Farm to Institution New England.
