The California Farm to School Network (CFSN) uses a regional approach. Take a look at the above map and identify which CFSN region you belong to. The regional lead for your region is your first contact to get you connected to others, whether you’re a farmer seeking a school food service director to sell to, a school board member seeking a nonprofit to help evaluate a Farm to School program, or an interested community member who wants to get involved and learn what work is already happening.
Work with your regional lead to get what you need for starting, expanding, or getting involved with a Farm to School program in your area – contact them today!
Below you can find the contact information for all CFSN regions, and links to their regional pages.
