Professional Development Webinar Trainings Coming Soon

Upcoming Webinars

Farm to School and 21st Century Food Service Programs


Thursday, November 15, 2018

7:00pm-8:00pm EST




In 2018, National Farm to School Network (NFSN) teamed up with National Education Association (NEA) as its National Partner of the Year to explore and promote opportunities for farm to school to align with and advance priorities of education settings, for all educators, including Education Support Professionals. Growing from this partnership is a movement to challenge schools to build 21st Century food programs. We want to enrich the connection between schools and fresh, healthy, and locally sourced food. In so doing, we will have healthier students with a better understanding of their relationship to food and nutrition. Additionally, we will build a new school nutrition workforce that will anchor this lofty project in our school communities. This webinar will explain it all and offer an opportunity to hear from participants in this new partnership that are already reaping the benefits.
