Procuring Local Foods for Child Nutrition Programs

From beef and bison in Montana to apples in Michigan and radishes in Rhode Island, local foods are on the menu for children across the country. Local procurement not only supports increasing economic opportunities for local farmers, but also helps child care institutions incorporate wholesome local foods into program meals and encourage children to make healthy food choices.

  1. Learn how local foods can meet meal pattern requirements.
  2. Understand what is required when purchasing local foods.
  3. Get resources for procuring local foods.
