On January 31, 2017, we hosted a webinar training called A Food Service Consultant's Guide to Serving More Local Food at Institutions. More than 240 people registered for the webinar. 

In this webinar, we shared our comprehensive toolkit for increasing local food procurement by institutional food services, showcasing how it pertains to the request for proposal (RFP) process for food service management companies. The webinar included a live case study about how the University of Vermont navigated a cutting edge RFP process by working with a consultant and engaging the campus community.

We invite you to use these resources in your own efforts to increase the amount of local food served at schools, colleges, hospitals and other institutions. If you have any questions, contact Peter Allison at peter@farmtoinstitution.org
