Erin McKee VanSlooten

Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy
Farm to Institution Project Director

Erin McKee VanSlooten joined IATP in 2010. Her current projects focus on Farm to School and Farm to Childcare, getting fresh healthy produce from our local growers into school and childcare meals, as well as testing and promoting curricula and educational models that encourage food literacy as children make the connection between those locally grown foods and the farmers who produce them.

Erin especially enjoys working with partners to advance the farm to institution cause both locally and nationally, and is a member of the MN Farm to School Leadership Team, the MN Child Nutrition Advisory Group, the School Food FOCUS Upper Midwest Learning Lab, and the National Farm to Preschool Subcommittee, and is currently starting a MN Farm to Childcare Coalition.

Erin holds a bachelor's degree in philosophy, English literature and Asian studies from St. Olaf College and is currently enrolled in the Master of Public Affairs Program at the Humphrey Institute for Public Affairs at the U of MN.
