Simca Horwitz joins the FINE team as Farm to Campus Co-Coordinator
Join us in welcoming Simca Horwitz, who is officially taking on the role of co-coordinator for the Farm to Campus Project. Many of you know Simca from her (ongoing) work as Eastern Mass Program Director for Massachusetts Farm to School. Simca will be assisting us with farm to campus efforts in Southern New England (MA, CT and RI) and development of the Farm to Campus Network. Simca has extensive experience working with schools and campuses in Massachusetts on local food sourcing. She is joining Riley Neugebauer, who will focus her Farm to Campus Project work on Northern New England (VT, NH and ME).
Simca is assisting with the development and launch of the Farm to Campus Network in the region, creating case studies that help demonstrate farm to campus success stories and lessons learned, organizing and hosting Farm to Campus convenings in Connecticut and Rhode Island, and assisting with metrics work for the project. Simca's extensive network, analytical skills, and expertise in working with institutional food systems and farmers will all help to continue building the momentum for the farm to campus effort in New England.
