The State Farm to School Policy Handbook: 2002-2018 is a tool for those working to advance the farm to school movement. The Handbook summarizes and analyzes bills and resolutions introduced between January 1, 2002, and December 31, 2018, from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories. It enables users to search bills by both jurisdiction and topic. The Handbook provides:
- Analysis of and infographics detailing state farm to school legislative trends;
- Summaries of proposed bills since 2002, whether enacted, defeated, or pending;
- Case studies on successful farm to school advocacy efforts in Hawai‘i, Michigan, New Mexico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Vermont; and
- Additional resources for advocates and policymakers to support state farm to school policies.
The State Farm to School Policy Handbook: 2002-2018 builds on a survey that was originally released in 2011, and updated in 2013, 2014, and 2017, and was previously called the State Farm to School Legislative Survey.
