FARM TO INSTITUTIOn

The goal of the Institutions buying local committee is to connect farms with institutions to encourage the use of local food in institutions. This meets the overall goals of the Adams County Food Policy Council of strengthening the local economy by supporting and promoting local farmers and businesses and it fosters partnerships to promote education, food assessment and action. Several school districts and WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital are currently purchasing from a local food hub.
