New MSU Resource to Support the Use of Local Foods in Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Programs
The MSU Center for Regional Food Systems just released a new resource titled, Local Food for Little Eaters: A Migrant & Seasonal Head Start Guide to Local Food Purchasing, as well as profiles of successful farm to Migrant & Seasonal Head Start (MSHS) programs nationwide.
This guide gives step-by-step instructions and interactive tools that MSHS programs can use to begin purchasing and using more local foods.
The companion piece, Farm to Migrant and Seasonal Head Start in Action, offers case studies highlighting Migrant & Seasonal Head Start programs nationwide that, through local foods, are reflecting and celebrating the cultures of children and families they engage.
