Farm to Institution

NOFA Vermont's Farm to Institution programs connect people to local producers by bringing local food into hospitals, workplace cafeterias, school and college cafeterias, and other institutional settings.

We are interested in improving the connections between local producers, food hubs, distributors and institutions. We like to think of this as more to the third power: more local food to more people more easily!

Farm to Institution Partners:


In 2014 and 2015, NOFA-VT worked with a variety of partners and institutions to research how institutions incorporate values in their local & regional purchasing programs.
