Scholarships open for National Farm to Cafeteria Conference

By Stephanie Heim, associate program director

The National Farm to Cafeteria Conference Network is now accepting scholarships to attend the conference, set for April 25-27 in Cincinnati, Ohio. So, I have a request for each of you: Please alert your partners and anyone else you work with who's involved with local food efforts to apply. Deadline for applications is 8 p.m. Eastern time (7 p.m. Central), Monday, February 12.

This event is the top national training and networking event for farm-to-cafeteria professionals. They include people working to improve community health, build economic opportunities for farmers and producers, and ensure long-term sustainability for local food efforts nationwide.

Sponsors want to ensure that the conference reflects the full diversity of the movement. Therefore, scholarships are prioritized for farmers and farm support organizations, farm-to-college and hospital practitioners, early care and education providers, food service professionals, persons of color, and youth through age 22.
