Seeding Success: Telling Your Farm to School Story

Resource type
Technical Assistance

Your Farm to School program is a success – now, let’s share your story! You will hear from LaTrice Stirrup and Alanna McCoy, the minds behind Common Threads, an Illinois Farm to School grantee who shared their story with their strong social media game and local media. Learn from an Emmy Award winning TV news anchor, Tiffany Salameh, which story pitches catch her interest, how you can visually tell your farm to school story to the camera to the greatest effect, and how pitch your story to local media. The more your community and local leaders know about your farm to school program through various communication channels, the more volunteers, fiscal support, and engagement you can garner for your program moving forward.
