The Farm to School Evaluation Toolkit is a resource to help farm to school programs of all sizes undertake evaluation. Evaluation can serve many purposes for farm to school programs, including helping demonstrating a program’s success or progress. Evaluation information allows for better communication of a program’s impact to funders, parents, school leadership, and other stakeholders, and can be be a tool to recruit new funders. It can also be useful for program improvement.
The toolkit will walk through each step of evaluation, providing specific practical guidance along with a wide array of data collection tools to get you started. This toolkit is designed with non-evaluators in mind but seasoned evaluators will find the resources and data collection instruments to be of great value, too.
