WHAT: Local Food Access & Systems Change—Farm to Child Care
Child care facilities in Wake County are pioneers in serving NC grown produce for snacks and meals! Hear from members of the Farm to Child Care Advisory Team about insights on the first year of Farm to Child Care (F2CC) systems-change implementation in Wake County, including:
- data on impact for children’s health and local food sales
- food procurement challenges and successes
- lessons learned to date on the child care side and the farmer/distributor side
- and more.
Lynn Policastro of Wake County SmartStart, Carol Mitchell of Wake County Cooperative Extension, and Jacob Rutz of NC State University will join AHA staff to share the F2CC story to date.
Hear also how new NC legislation allowing shared-use kitchens can support F2CC and local food entrepreneurs in Wake County. Network with partners, share insights and be part of the conversation.
