A webinar hosted by the Midwestern Legislative Conference Agriculture & Natural Resources and Education committees and open to everyone.

In this webinar — designed for Midwestern legislators and legislative staff, but open to anyone interested — participants will hear from national experts on farm-to-school strategies and learn about promising, innovative programs being implemented by states.

The goals of these farm-to-school programs include expanding markets for state agricultural producers; getting more fresh, healthy food in school cafeterias; and exposing young people to new foods and local agricultural production.

This webinar will help legislators and others learn about state-led policy strategies and investments.
