Farm to Institution

Mentorships & Technical AssistanceSlowmoneyminn_people.png

Keep an eye on this website and our newsletter! We have some exciting new opportunties available in 2019-2020.

And make sure to check out our collaborative Farmers Market Aggregation Hub project, which streamlines purchasing for institutions. 

Mentorship Applications Closed

Throughout 2016, 2017, and spring 2018, a limited number of Farm to Institution Mentorships were developed throughout the state to help participants navigate barriers, access existing resources and opportunities, and to accelerate Farm to Institution success.  If selected through the application and interview process, your institution or farm was matched with a targeted team made up of relevant topic experts and practitioners on-the-ground to provide technical assistance.
