Should LB Schools go Farm-To-Table? Locals Find Innovation in San Diego Area

In October 2018, Long Beach locals interesting in improving school food went on a road trip to learn from experts in farm-to-school practices in San Diego.

This trip followed a Long Beach workshop about improving school food that was hosted as part of our annual Foodways Summit in May, and left attendees inspired to bring recommendations back to LBUSD’s Nutrition Services department.

Long Beach Fresh prepared a report that highlights the details of our trip, as well as five key innovations that have been made in the greater San Diego / Vista area.

Thanks to Primal Alchemy Catering, Harbor Area Farmers Markets, Long Beach Grocery Cooperative, and the San Diego Food System Alliance for helping to bring this inspiration back to Long Beach.
