Mutual collaboration

Hello matts11.pikabo,

I am Noel, I work with a bio-pharmaceutical company here in the United Kingdom. I have a business proposal for you. I want us to partner in a supply business to my employer, where you will represent the seller.

The profits are worth the efforts and you do not require experience nor expertise to participate in this. If you are interested, kindly respond back to me so I can explain further.

Kind regards
Noel Dosi

Applications are now open for the School Food Systems Transformation Challenge Sub-Grants, which is part of USDA's Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative.These grants will transform the K-12 school food marketplace by increasing collaboration between school districts, food producers, suppliers, distributors, and/or community partners. Students can expect to see improvements in the quality of food on their plates, thanks to these new efforts.FNS encourages all eligible applicants to consider applying for one or both grant opportunities:Supporting Community Agriculture and Local Education Systems (Project SCALES): Led by the Center for School and Community Partnerships at Boise State University, these projects will increase the procurement of locally sourced foods by developing innovative partnerships between schools and producers; growers; and processors. In addition, schools will be supported in the preparation of the foods and promoting them to students. Project SCALES was awarded $16.1 million and will provide two cohorts with sub-grants of up to $150,000 each (70 total). Two informational webinars on this grant opportunity will be held on Dec. 6, 2023 (English) and Dec. 13, 2023 (Spanish). Applications for the first cohort will close on Jan. 26, 2024. Applications for the second cohort will open in 2025.

Chef Ann Foundation's PLANTS was awarded $7.8 million and will provide sub-grants of $500,000-$600,000 to each of eight awardees. These grants will increase opportunities for regional small- and mid-scale producers, aggregators, and processors to become part of the K-12 school food market. An informational webinar on this grant opportunity will be held on Nov. 29, 2023. Applications close on Jan. 22, 2024.

Introducing the Lake MI School Food System Innovation Hub

The Lake Michigan School Food System Innovation Hub is coming soon! 
The MSU Center for Regional Food Systems is a part of the Lake Michigan School Food System Innovation Hub, which supports people working to improve meals in schools across Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana — especially in areas that don’t have equitable access to resources.  

Our USDA-funded grant-making initiative offers funding, training and other assistance to partnerships that include farmers, food producers, suppliers, distributors, schools and organizations.  

In February 2024, we’ll open applications for two new funding opportunities: the Spark Awards and the Innovation Collaborative Awards. Additional grant cycles will continue through 2028. 

Spark Awards fund projects that need a short-term infusion of funds for school food system and product improvements, such as capacity-building, planning and product-testing projects.  

Innovation Collaborative Awards fund projects that promote systems-level change of the school food system, such as scaling up of programs, forming regional partnerships, or developing or integrating new programs or products.  

Wonder if you have what it takes to go after these opportunities? Don't hesitate! We can help guide you through the application process, and all our grantees receive ongoing support tailored to their needs and goals.
