Utah Farm to Fork is working to improve local procurement in Utah's Child Nutrition Programs by compiling a database of farmers who are interested in selling their products to schools, child care centers, and summer food programs.
If you are interested in selling your products to child nutrition programs, complete this survey so schools and childcare center buyers can connect with you.
Utah Farm to Fork is also compiling a database of school nutrition programs that are interested in local procurement. Check and see if a school within your delivery range is interested in items you produce!
