Please see the USDA press release below announcing the first USDA Farm to School Grants. Congrats to the Michigan Land Use Institute and the Waterford School District for their awards in this competitive, national grant opportunity!
And thanks to all of those who submitted proposals and represented Michigan well! This funding opportunity will be available again next year, and I’ll be sure to send along more information as it becomes available.
