Greetings -

Exciting news! The Montana Beef to School Project has released its case study report last week in celebration of National Farm to School Month (October).

This research and outreach project has involved researchers, stakeholders, and community partners across the state of Montana with the goal of understanding what factors make beef to school programs successful and encourage the use of local beef in every Montana school. The case study report features: (1) an overview of findings, (2) amazing graphics that describe our findings, (3) stories that feature the efforts of schools, beef producers, and meat processors across Montana. These lessons learned contribute to an understanding of how to make beef to school and farm to school generally more feasible in Montana.

The Montana Beef to School Project is a three-year collaborative project between several Montana beef producers and processors, schools, and many stakeholders represented in the Montana Beef to School Coalition. It is funded by a $220,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Western Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program. The case study report was authored by Byker Shanks and Janet Gamble at MSU Food and Health Lab in the College of Education, Health and Human Development's Department of Health and Human Development, Bass and Schumacher of MSU Extension, Aubree Roth of Montana Farm to School, and Demetrius Fassas and Mallory Stefan of National Center for Appropriate Technology. An additional list of report reviewers and contributors is listed on page two of the case study report.

Best wishes,
