This year, CoFED will be presenting at the National Farm to Cafeteria Conference alongside other amazing organizations doing food system work. Look out for our Executive Director, Farzana Serang, and Board member, Sarah Rocker! 

Want to know more about the conference? 

The National Farm to Cafeteria Conference: Powering Up will convene a diverse group of stakeholders from across the farm to cafeteria movement—more than 1,000 food service professionals, farmers, educators, youth leaders, policy makers, advocates, state/federal agency professionals, entrepreneurs, public health professionals and others—working to source local food for institutional cafeterias and foster a culture of food and agricultural literacy across America. Together, we have the power to affect great change! Cafeterias in schools, universities, prisons, hospitals and childcare centers serve more than 40 million Americans every day during the school year, placing the farm to cafeteria movement at the forefront of the fight to end obesity and strengthen local food systems. Join us in Austin, April 15-18, for inspiring field trips, workshops, speakers and networking.
