Farm to School grant recipients announced - find a school looking to buy from you

Annalisa Hultberg, Extension Educator, food safety

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture recently awarded $4.22 million in Farm to School grants to school districts to purchase Minnesota-grown and -raised foods for school meals. The full press release is available online. This record amount of grant funding seeks to increase access to local foods served in schools, expand market opportunities for emerging farmers in the state, and support development of relationships between farmers and schools.

If you are interested in selling to schools, this is a great time to reach out and make connections. 

To see a list of 114 school districts that received grant funding, see the press release from the MDA and visit the MDA Farm to School grant website: First Bite Grantees and Full Tray Grantees
