On February 27, 2024, NYHealth hosted a webinar with American Farmland Trust, Hunger Solutions New York, and National Farm to School Network to learn how advocates for healthy school meals and farm to school can work together to help ensure that school meals are not only accessible but also healthy and locally sourced. With New York State serving as a case study, speakers discussed the potential for coordinated advocacy, existing challenges, and best practices for advocates in other states to consider.

Panelists were:

  • Mikaela Perry, New York Policy Manager, American Farmland Trust
  • Krista Hesdorfer, Director of Public Affairs, Hunger Solutions New York
  • Cassandra Bull, Policy Specialist, National Farm to School Network
