Farm to School Act of 2023 Fact Sheet

National Farm to School Network
January 12, 2024

In 2023, the Farm to School Act has been reintroduced. On behalf of the Network, NFSN staff worked with policymakers in the House and Senate to increase both the mandatory funding and grant cap to the Patrick Leahy Farm to School Program grants at USDA. Additionally, the bills would allow better target funding to support Tribal projects, community need, and beginning and socially disadvantaged producers, and grant USDA the authority to modify or waive the current 25% matching requirement.
