Northshire Grows works with NOFA-Vermont and statewide colleagues to increase local food purchasing in institutions across our regions.
These institutions include schools, colleges, healthcare organizations, eldercare organizations and restaurants.
Opening up these new markets increases profitability for farms and food businesses improves the quality of institutional food, and offers healthful options in these settings.
Win, win, win!
