Farm to School Panel Discussion

Why aren't more of our organic farms participating in farm to school Programs? We\'ve assembled a panel of experts to share their experiences with Farm to School in NJ to talk about the obstacles, and how to overcome them. We hope that all farms who are interested in Farm to School will attend. NOFA NJ has partnered with farms to submit two USDA grants for Farm to School and is hopeful we can support others. Erin Maquire, Farm to School Coordinator of the NJ Department of Agriculture, Tony Kowalak, General Manager for Sodexo, with extensive experience with Farm to School, and Mikey Azzara, Founder of Zone 7 will be panelists. Nagisa Manabe, COO of NOFA-NJ will be the moderator.
