Welcome and thank you for your interest in Montana Farm to Cafeteria programs!

This survey was created in 2013 by the Farm to Cafeteria Network, a program of the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) based in Butte, Montana. We would now like to update and expand our current database and help map current Farm to Institution efforts across the state.

For the purposes of this survey, “Farm to Cafeteria” refers to programs in public and private institutions such as schools, colleges, healthcare facilities, and correctional facilities that serve healthy local food while engaging the broader community in that effort.

If you are a staff or community member involved in such a program, even if the program is new and in the beginning stages, please take a few minutes to tell us more about your institution’s efforts surrounding local food. The information you provide will be used to:

•Update a comprehensive database of Montana Farm to Cafeteria programs to be shared on our website and with a broader audience
•Connect your institution and other institutions in your area with more local farmers, ranchers, and other producers and distributors with similar goals
•Assess the current institutional market in Montana and plan for its future development

In this survey, the term “local food” refers to products that were grown and/or processed within the state of Montana or within a 100 mile radius of your institution.

If you have any questions about the survey or would like to update your entry in the future, you can contact Farm to Cafeteria Network by sending an email to healthyfoodmt@ncat.org.
