School foodservice directors navigate a complex web of challenges when it comes to getting food on the tray - and even more so when they try to bring in more fresh, healthy, and local foods.
This two-part series highlights farm to school leaders in California who didn't get discouraged by barriers, but instead used their own creativity and innovative spirit to launch and sustain farm to school efforts in their districts. These stories were originally shared as a part of Center for Ecoliteracy's California Food for California Kids Innovation Awards, and are now being shared through our statewide network.
Part II of the series looks at innovations in Farm to School made possible by strategic collaborations and leveraging community support. We'll hear from the following CA foodservice directors:
- Sandy Curwood, Conejo Valley Unified School District
- Pilar Gray, Fort Bragg Unified School District
- Pamela Lambert, Oceanside Unified School District
