Editor’s Note: This is the first in a new occasional feature in SFA Connect that spotlights an organization with which SFA collaborates and our relationship therein.
The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy has been working locally and globally at the intersection of policy and practice to ensure fair and sustainable food, farm and trade systems.
Recently, IATP has partnered with SFA on a number of projects, including Farm-to-School and Farm-to-Institution work that links interested parties within our farmer network to potential institutional buyers and provides education and information for our members to more profitably work with said buyers.
IATP also has been forthcoming with assistance and resources – it has collaborated with SFA at the last two Midwest Soil Health Summits, hosting the International Roundtable and sending multiple experts with vast global expertise to lead each discussion.
A Business/Organization Member of SFA, IATP’s work nicely complements ours and is making a difference both locally and globally. We are proud of this partnership.
