The MDA will award up to $400,000 to eligible institutions to increase the use of Minnesota grown and raised foods through planning grants or equipment purchases and physical improvements. AGRI Farm to School Grants have assisted schools and early care and education organizations purchase food processors, cooling and storage equipment, and specialized ovens to make it easier to serve Minnesota grown produce, meat and dairy. Past grantees have utilized planning grant funds to develop their Farm to School programs by connecting with farmers in their area, determining how seasonal produce fits into menu cycles and creating processes to use local foods in infant foods at early care settings.

Apply for a grant. Applications for AGRI Farm to School and Farm to Early Care and Education Grants must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. CST on November 16, 2017. The request for proposals and instructions can be found online at: https://www.mda.state.mn.us/grants/grants/mnfarmtoschool.aspx

  1. You always write good blog and it is also an interesting blog I have read at your blog. By the way, I am also thinking of starting my work as a content writer and for that I have needed some guidance. Recently I wrote a blog based upon case study services and it was really amazing to get help with this. By the way, do you have any idea from where I can get more help about this?

  2. On the other hand, the download-based casinos are a tad unusual; they require you to download the specific software, which, คาสิโนออนไลน์ in a way, connects you to the casino service provider, and facilitate you in handling the contacts without the browser support.
