Farm to Institution Resources - Central Maine

This page was built in November 2015 following our Central Maine Meet the Buyers event on 11/4/15. We plan to add more resources over time. Please contact us with any questions or feedback.

Central Maine Meet the Buyers Event

On 11/4/15 we hosted an inaugural Central Maine Meet the Buyers event. We brought together food producers and wholesale buyers of all sizes to meet each other and discuss Farm to Institution barriers and solutions.   About 50 guests were in attendance.

Post-Event Survey

Your feedback is valuable.  For those in attendance, please take a  minute to fill out our quick 8 question post event survey.  We will keep the survey open until Friday, December 11.

Producer & Buyer In-Depth Surveys

Prior to the 11/4/15 event we asked Producer & Buyer attendees to complete a survey about their operation and share their insights with farm to institution selling/purchasing.  We shared an overview of the results at the event.  Due to a response rate of 9, however, we would like to see if we could get more responses, and share a written summary of the results to our attendee email list in January 2016.  We are asking for your responses to be submitted by Friday, December 11.  Thank you!
