Catch up with the NH Food Alliance's October 2021 Network Cafe

On October 1, the NH Food Alliance hosted its monthly Network Cafe in partnership with NH Farm to School entitled "Roll Call with NH Farm to School: Policy, Regional Network Development, Community Engagement & More." Attendees learned about exciting updates and upcoming events through panel presentations with Nikki Kolb of NOFA-NH, who presented on the Local Food for Local Schools Reimbursement bill, Stacey Purslow of NH Farm to School, who shared about Farm to School Month (which is happening NOW through the end of October!), Alexis Dwyer from the NH Department of Education Nutrition Services, who spoke about their Great Apple Crunch program happening on October 7, and Jess Gerrior of the Cornucopia Project , who presented on regional farm to school network development, specifically about their work in the Monadnock region.

Watch the entire Network Cafe below! Browse resources and links from the chat that were shared by attendees and presenters below as well. And feel free to follow along with the agenda HERE >>
