The USDA is currently accepting farm-to-school applications from eligible schools to help improve the health and well-being of their students and connect with local agricultural producers.
There are three types of available grants. First, planning grants are available to assist schools just getting started in farm to school activities. Second, implementation grants are intended to help schools augment or expand existing efforts. Third, support service grants are available to a variety of groups to conduct trainings, create complimentary curriculum, and further develop supply chains. A total of $5 million is available.
Applications are due April 24th.
