Continuing Education Opportunities

The Farm to School Team has created a Farm to School Toolkit webinar series.  The webinars guide participants through the planning process for a farm to school program. The webinars offer questions to consider and helpful resources to reference when starting or growing a farm to school program and useful for schools, school districts, and community partners.  The  first of eleven webinars, Intro to Farm to School: Planning and Building a Team is on January 14th at 12:00 pm CST and will feature guest speaker Steve Merinelli, the Food Service Director from Milton Town, Vermont.  In consideration of everyone’s time, this year’s webinar series will only feature one speaker and will last approximately 30 minutes.   USDA has applied for SNA CEU’s again this year, but at this time have not been able to have webinars approved – yet.  The webinars can be used for Professional Standards though!
