New Toolkit for Direct Purchasing of Local Food

Minnesota has a NEW Toolkit for Direct Purchasing of Local Food, created from the early experiences and success of Rippleside Elementary in Aitkin County. This toolkit is intended for use by school districts, as well as other types of food service, for procurement of local food directly from farmers.


If you want to start sourcing local food from farmers in your area but aren’t sure how to start, this toolkit offers examples and templates you can adapt to start a community-based local food procurement process. This toolkit was sponsored by Aitkin County Public Health, Healthy Northland, and the Minnesota Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP). Compilation of the toolkit was sponsored by the Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture. Download it here: Toolkit for Direct Purchasing of Local Food
