Oregon Farmers: Join the growing schoold food market!

School food is a relatively untapped and reliable market for farmers. Relationships between farmers and schools benefit local communities, and provide some of the healthiest, freshest food to children. The state of Oregon recently awarded more than $1M in grants to Oregon schools to buy local foods, which means that Oregon schools are more able to afford local food than ever before.

Ecotrust is excited to be able to provide FREE assistance to help farmers and other food producers in Oregon to make connections and sell to these school districts.

If you are interested in becoming a part of the growing school food market, Ecotrust would love to hear from you! Email Katy at katy@ecotrust.org, or call 503-467-0763.

Oregon Tilth hopes some of you explore this exciting opportunity to ensure that schools are buying from local farms, and that kids are eating healthy, local foods.
