CHSC School and Community Coordinators are invited to please join us on Wednesday July 26th from 2-3pm for an OPCE webinar on Implementing Farm to Institution Efforts in the Context of CHSC. We’ll hear first from Jonathan McNeice and Elizabeth Machnica from Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (community coordinators will recall that they first joined us at the CHSC Convening in March) who will describe a Farm to Hospital initiative in Buffalo. Then we’ll hear from Erin Summerlee of the Rural Food Network and Laura Biasillo of Broome CCE to discuss Farm to School efforts in Broome, and the role of GAP certification in that effort. Speakers will share an overview of their respective efforts, challenges common to working with hospitals and schools regarding procurement, and steps to get a farm-to-institution initiatives started in other regions.
