Mississippi Farm to School Network

Projects

Website: http://www.mississippifarmtoschool.org/

Mission: The Mississippi Farm to School Network works to connect farmers with schools in order to bring Mississippi products to school cafeterias.  We seek to strengthen the local agricultural economy and educate Mississippians on the importance of eating locally-grown, nutritionally-dense foods.  By gathering a diverse community of farm to school advocates, the network strives to reach all students and their families.

The Mississippi Farm to School Network has three main goals: create a coalition to connect farm to school practioners across Mississippi, improve student health and well-being across Mississippi, and improve local farm economies across the state of Mississippi.

Director: Co-Directors Sunny Young Baker, Dorothy Grady-Scarbrough
