Farm to Early Childcare Education (ECE) Roadmap

OSSE, FRESHFARM and DC Food Policy Council developed the Farm to ECE Roadmap thanks to a generous two-year Farm to Early Care and Education Implementation Grant (FIG) from the Association of State Public Health Nutritionists (ASPHN). The three organizations formed a coalition that also included members of DC Health, DC Hunger Solutions, DC Association for Education of the Young Child and UDC SNAP-Ed and implemented root-cause analysis brainstorming sessions to create the framework for the Roadmap that includes barriers, tactics and strategies.
