The Food Trust is supporting an Advisory Board working with geographic clusters in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Central PA. Appointed members, representing a wide variety of grassroots Farm to ECE stakeholders, began to meet last month and will serve for six months guiding the development of regional learning collaboratives. These collaboratives will network ECE providers, farmers and supportive partners, pilot new farm to ECE practices, will further ground-truth the work and the need, and will build capacity among all stakeholders and individuals to engage in the advocacy process. Further details about the Advisory Board’s composition and updates will follow shortly.
