AGRI Farm to School grants

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is now taking applications for the Agricultural Growth, Research and Innovation (AGRI) ‘Farm to School’ and ‘Farm to Early Care and Education’ Grants. The MDA will award up to $377,500 to eligible institutions to increase the use of Minnesota grown foods through either planning and feasibility studies or equipment purchases and physical improvements.

“These grants serve two purposes: we are able to invest in schools and early care and education organizations and we can expand markets that support local farmers,” said Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson. “Communities across Minnesota are better off thanks to these AGRI grants and the opportunities they create.”

In previous grant rounds, the highly competitive AGRI Farm to School Grants helped grantees purchase food processors, cooling and storage equipment, and specialized ovens to make it easier to serve Minnesota grown produce, meat, and dairy. Other recipients have utilized grant funds by connecting with farmers in their areas, determining how seasonal produce fits into menu cycles, and creating processes to use local foods for infant foods in early care settings.

AGRI ‘Farm to School’ and ‘Farm to Early Care and Education’ Grants benefit farmers by empowering schools to use locally grown foods. Jackson County Central used their AGRI Farm to School Grant funds to purchase a Steam’n Hold Steamer. The equipment allowed them to purchase more locally raised vegetables from Minnesota farms like ‘Brandt Gardens and Greenhouse’.

Applications for ‘Farm to School’ and ‘Farm to Early Care and Education Grants’ must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. CST on November 1, 2018. For more information and to apply, visit www.mda.state.mn.us/f2sgrant and www.mda.state.mn.us/f2ecegrant.

  1. Find out more about the interest rate and make sure that you won’t overpay much. Many websites offer the 400 Payday Loans calculators, which are helpful when you want to know the exact amount of money that you will have to pay back, taking into account the repayment period you have chosen and the amount you want to be approved for.

  3. I think the process of frequently sending students for trips to notable farms, specifically in Mankato, MA should get implemented. Much information about the ranching lifestyle is evaded from students. Like I had better results when I decided to purchase an assignment online UK regarding agriculture than jotting down pointers my teacher told me that couldn’t even get me learning how to protect ones heifer herds. Better marks with knowledge? YES

  4. I have been wanting to volunteer for Farm-to-school, I have tried to get in touch with the team to ask if they need any volunteering services, but sadly I couldn’t talk to them. I am free these days as I have submitted all the Proposals For Dissertation that my clients had assigned - yes, I am an academic writer if you're wondering.

  7. This is a great initiative – I really appreciate it. In fact, I have been looking for ways to volunteer for this amazing initiative. I asked a friend of mine to share with me the procedure – but haven’t gotten a response yet. I have to order my essay online, and once I am done with that, I think I will search for the procedure on my own. I already have “Essay Writing Service - Ca.Eazyresearch.com” bookmarked on my browser, so it won’t take me long to order the dissertation. As soon as I am done with the order, I will get at the task of finding out the procedure to volunteer.
