Farm-to-Institution: Equity and Impact
The Common Market partners with food service management companies to reach vulnerable communities and scale impact for sustainable farms. Through these partnerships, we can leverage the purchasing power of food service operations to re-invest in rural communities. In this webinar, you will learn more about specific tools and initiatives to measure and promote local procurement used by top food service management companies.
On a smaller scale, Greener Partners offers a case study in institutional support for direct local food and farms. Through their model at the Guild House Farm, learn how land-rich institutions can partner with a farmer or farm organization to raise food in collaboration with and in service of community.
