Institutions such as schools, universities, camps, hospitals and prisons are places where the food consumer often doesn't have much choice. This is food intended to feed large volumes, and has to do so with typically small per capita budgets, USDA nutritional requirements and limited labor and equipment resources.

We'll look at the paths to bringing local food into institutions and the passionate individuals committed to making Farm to Institution a reality.
