In 2017 the Alliance set a plan to measure the collective impact of our work. At the end of calendar year 2018, we collected school year 2017-2018 data by surveying all members and compiling data reported by Golden Radish Awardees and Committee members. This first-ever, Georgia Farm to School Alliance Annual Report summarizes the collective impact of 12 Georgia Farm to School Alliance members working together for school year 2017-2018.
