Názov práce:Assessing the Effectiveness of the Supporting Legislation and Institutional Environment in the United States’ Farm to School Program
 
 
Anotácia:In the last fifteen years, the United States’ Farm to School (F2S) Program has grown exponentially. Twenty-six states have introduced local purchasing preference legislation for state agencies and schools. Although F2S programs have been around for nearly 2 decades, little research has been done on the policies passed and how/if these are effective and contribute to the stated objectives. The thesis focuses on several types of legislation passed and specifically on local preference laws. The thesis is based on the assumptions that the passed laws were written and enforced correctly and lead to greater effectiveness of farm to school programs, particularly in form of increased participation of farmers, higher demand for farmers’ products and more supplied products. This hypothesis is based on the assumptions of institutional economics that laws and policies help increase the equilibrium of local food demanded by schools and supplied by local farmers by offsetting the barriers keeping it not at equilibrium. To meet the stated objectives, the thesis uses both quantitative and qualitative research techniques
