Deadline for Innovation Hub Grants Soon! Apply by 4/30

Application deadline is 4/30 for the Lake Michigan School Food System Innovation Hub! 
The MSU Center for Regional Food Systems is 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. Grants are available from $10,000 to $100,000 per year.  
The deadline for applications is approaching! Applications are open until April 30, 2024.
