Event Details

A virtual symposium focusing on the benefits of local agriculture and sustainable food systems in promoting the physical and emotional well-being of our youth and families.

When: Wednesday, April 28, 2021 | 1 – 2:30 p.m.

Who: Betsy Rosenbluth, Project Director of Vermont FEED at Shelburne Farms

Why: This virtual symposium continues our focus on Vermont organizations that are “Caring for Our Kids” and keeping them emotionally and physically strong during this unprecedented time.

Food security is an often overlooked but critical aspect of health care. A sustainable food system gives everyone access to nutritious, healthy, affordable foods and opportunities to produce it. Students who are well-fed with nutritious foods are more engaged and successful in their learning. The Farm to School model gives students the knowledge, skills and confidence to make healthy choices for themselves and their communities.

The conversation will include the perspectives of high school students who have been active in promoting Farm to School efforts in their local community.
