The Collaborative Meeting 

The monthly collaborative meeting serves as a space where participants come together to discuss topics in farm-to-school initiatives. This includes bringing in guest speakers, sharing resources, and presenting opportunities for involvement in Farm-to- School across Connecticut.

We convene monthly on the 3rd Wednesday via Zoom, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am.
