As part of the Healthy Kids, Healthy Programs 2022 Summit, JSI is excited to showcase Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources and their resources to support School Meal Programs in School Year 2022-2023.

Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources engages and supports school nutrition programs by helping to keep the Massachusetts’ food supply safe and secure, and to work to keep Massachusetts agriculture economically and environmentally sound. They work with farmers and partner organizations across the state to promote and sustain Massachusetts agriculture. Here are the top 3 resources shared by Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources to help school districts in the upcoming school year.

  1.  MassGrown Exchange: is a business-to-business platform that assists farmers, fishers, food buyers, and ag-related businesses to connect, exchange, and find products and services.
