Farm to School grants offered

VERMONT — The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets is opening its Farm to School Vision Grant on April 15. This new grant program is part of the agency’s Farm to School Program. The purpose of the grant is to help communities build better food systems through youth education and empowerment. Passionate people from all over the state are working with youth to help make more just, sustainable and compassionate local food systems and the agency wants to amplify those efforts.

Up to $38,000 is available to support projects that help youth learn about and engage in issues related to agriculture, nutrition, health and related fields. Funding decision makers are specifically interested in projects that offer innovative and impactful approaches, can be scaled or replicated and address contemporary issues such as climate change, COVID-19, food insecurity, racial and social justice, food sovereignty and others.

Vermont schools and licensed and/or registered childcare providers are eligible to apply. Non- profits or community organizations that conduct programming in Vermont are also eligible, but must apply as a co-applicant with an eligible school or childcare.
Details on how to apply for a Farm to School Vision Grant are online at tinyurl.com/FarmToSchoolVision.
The application deadline is May 12.
