Building resiliency, relationships, and capacity within New England’s food supply chain to K-12 and higher education institutions.

The Need

Educational institutions represent a collective force with the potential to significantly impact the region’s food system through greater regional procurement, and by helping students recognize the impact they have as consumers with the food choices they make. Despite progress in recent years, barriers persist that prevent our academic institutions from sourcing more regional food within their school cafeterias and dining halls.   

Our Support  

Launched by the Henry P. Kendall Foundation in 2018, the New England Food Vision Prize Program aims to increase the amount of local and regional food prepared and served on New England college and university campuses and within K-12 public school districts, helping to strengthen the region’s food system. The Prize program, offered annually, awards grants up to $200,000 to winning teams.  

Prizes are awarded to projects that build resilience, relationships, and capacity within New England’s academic institutional food supply chain, resulting in increased preparation, sourcing, serving, or use and consumption of local and regional food at K-12 schools and higher education institutions.
