Thank you for participating in NOFA-VT's statewide Farm to Institution local food Demand Survey. The goal of our research is to understand institutional purchasing so we can quantify what local foods institutions want and in what form. Ultimately, this is aligned with the Farm to Plate strategic plan and will, we hope, enable more access to local foods. Our focus in this survey is exclusively fruits, vegetables, and eggs.
We are really counting on you to help us gather this information. This survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes of your time.
Please note that we are going to be asking you to estimate dollars and pounds of product purchased. Please try and be as accurate as possible, however, we do realize you are estimating. To facilitate your ability to complete this survey, please forward it to the individual in your organization who is most knowledgeable about purchasing financials, if it is not you.
All responses are confidential and will be used solely for reporting purposes. No individual data will be shared without your consent which you can provide at the end of the survey if you so choose. Your address data is only being used for mapping purposes.
If you would like to contact us directly, please feel free to call or e-mail.
