Author: Cheryl Sternman Rule, Anthony Abraham Jack
Organization: Bon Appétit Management Company

When Students Are Hungry: An Examination of Food Insecurity in Higher Education was conceived, researched, and drafted by food service provider Bon Appétit Management Company starting in early 2018. It draws heavily on previous research and work performed by the Bon Appétit Fellows, its waste programs manager, and one of its nutrition project managers, a registered dietitian.

White paper on farm to institution sales: Educational Institutions in in MA

Author: Noah Baustin
Organization: Massachusetts Food Policy Council
Published: 2017

The white paper was developed as a result of priorities set out in the Massachusetts Local Food Action Plan, an extensive Massachusetts food system review that was published by the Massachusetts Food System Collaborative in 2015. From that plan came the subsequent development of six topics that the Massachusetts Food Policy Council prioritized for 2017. One of those topics was “to support increased purchases of Massachusetts grown and produced foods, including increased purchases of local foods by state institutions, public and private educational programs, and meals programs.” The white paper was designed to highlight what has already been accomplished in Massachusetts and what challenges still lie ahead, and to support policy recommendations designed to increase the amount of Massachusetts-grown food being served in institutions.
