Farm to School Mini-Grants for Native American Schools
The National Farm to School Network is pleased to announce a new mini-grant project: Seed Change in Native Communities with Farm to School
. The Seed Change in Native Communities with Farm to School project aims to expand farm to school activities (procurement of local and traditional foods, school gardens, and food and agriculture education) in Native communities as a strategy to leverage community-wide initiatives towards building food security and food sovereignty and towards revitalizing use of traditional foods. The project will provide five Native schools a mini-grant in the amount of $5,900 to expand and promote farm to school.
