The Farm to Institution Center is a division of Community Health Improvement Partners (CHIP). Established in 1995, CHIP has been a leader in innovative, collaborative solutions to address critical community health issues in the San Diego region. The Farm to Institution Center has a two-fold mission:
1) To improve community health by improving access and consumption of healthy foods.
2) To support farmers in creation of a vibrant, diverse, and growing local agricultural scene.
The Center works to create this healthy and sustainable local food system, focusing primarily on the connection between local farm and institution as a pathway of good food into the community.
