Vermont Farm to School Network: Connecting Classrooms, Cafeterias, and Communities

Case Study Vermont
Summary
How more than 60 partners across the State of Vermont used system mapping, storytelling, participatory budgeting and other tools to reduce hunger, support local food and farms, and improve education.
Description

A cross-sector coalition in Vermont is working together to make progress on critical statewide issues: childhood hunger and nutrition, education, obesity and wellness, farm viability and environmental quality. Sixty statewide partners are collaborating to understand these complex challenges and advance solutions together—much faster than they could alone.
